we continue to hammer teachers and allocate ever more resources to try
to get the schools to force every kid to succeed, whether or not the
student or parents put any effort. We try to make the 10% make up for
the other 90%!
I retired after 31 years teaching elementary school in Alpine School District. I also spent 8 years in the Utah State Legislature.
After retiring, I taught 5th grade at a charter school for a year, spent a year teaching English in China, and again taught at the charter school for two more years. I am now again teaching English to post-graduate students at a university in China.
