Give Barrow Teachers a raise........
My Fellow Conservatives,
The time has come to eliminate remaining
Teacher Furlough Days, and also get on
board with Gov. Deal's plan to give
Teachers a long overdue pay raise!!!
Why do they deserve a pay raise you ask?
Simple. Teachers perform a task in their
daily routines, that other state, local, and
Federal workers do not. What is that?
They have the responsibility not only to
educate our students, but are also looked
up to as positive role models, which
enhances personal growth, and interpersonal
skills sets, that will define them in the competitive
workplace of the future. What a responsibility
Of course I have heard the argument that not
all Teachers display positive role model
attributes. That is correct. Not every single
Teacher is a positive role model. Some go
astray of the high moral and ethical standards
set forth in the contracts they sign. However,
every county in this state has a disciplinary
review process in place to handle a Teacher(s)
who stray from the plan. Teachers who have
been found to be in violation of those standards
should, and must be sanctioned / terminated.
Having said that, the few bad Teachers that
often slip through the system, should not be
allowed to become the definition of all of our
hard working Teachers, in the State of Georgia.
The Teachers that I know love the work that they
do each day, and care about each student that
they are challenged to educate. Further, many
of our Teachers are the closest thing to a real
parent that they encounter in any day! That
had to be said, and I feel better now, for having
Our kids are the future. Without the promise of
their future achievements, we have little to
look forward to. Thank God we have Teachers!
God Bless each of them. Let' get off the dime,
quit making excuses, and just give them the
pay raise they deserve........,
Until Next Time...........From
