McCain Makes This Teacher Cry
In a letter to the Salt Lake Tribune, this schoolteacher says she is offended by Sen. McCain's assertion that teachers need to do a better job. She writes, "Public schools are doing everything McCain asks of us with inadequate funding, facilities, textbooks, and technology. Sitting in public school classrooms are students with autism, Down syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, and a host of physical and mental challenges. There are abused children, drug addicts, pregnant girls, clinically depressed adolescents, gang members, and students with myriad social and emotional issues....We teach them all."
