Heartbreaking middle school teacher confession of real life in schools
Look at any comments section about education in the United States, and you’ll find people talking about the laziness of teachers who don’t “appreciate” their supposedly easy schedules.
Sixth-grade teacher Kerstin Westcott explains why she left the job she loved in the Green Bay school district, and it is nothing short of gut-wrenching.
Lieutenant Jeffrey Brester, who is in charge of the school’s security, had this to say:
He said the resource officers take the issues at the schools seriously and take whatever steps are needed, but also need help from parents and the community.
“It’s not a police issue. It’s not a school issue. It’s almost a community issue,” Brester said. “We need support from parents. We need parents to hold children accountable.”
Of course, this story is nothing new to teachers around the country.
