  • This teacher is indoctrinating the kids, not teaching them.

    Turning them into mindless drones to do the governments will.

    Shame on you!

    Cathy, I understand she is not looking for tax dollars but instead my dollars, some of which already pay her salary. Continuing education is one's own responsibility. No one paid for my continuing education and I suggest that this teacher fund her own.

  • Craig E. Friend of Chicago

    If she wants to go she should pay her own way.
