Teachers held accountable when a child fails, not society

Wonderful teachers, good teachers, poor teachers are found in public schools and private schools. I know - I taught in both systems in Green Bay and in other states. Teaching in the deep South in a "black" segregated school (pre-civil rights 1965) was easier than teaching in an at-risk school in Green Bay. Why? In the South I enjoyed full support of the families, the church and the community. Here and now, our public school system and public school qualified, professional teachers are solely blamed when a child fails. In the words of our governor, "failing schools" are at fault - not failing society, failing families, failing churches.

In Green Bay, public schools nurture and provide basic necessities while teaching the hundreds of homeless children, the needy, immigrants, the poor. Question: Mr. Mayor of Green Bay, how do you support all of the children in our city when you ignore the Green Bay School Board's meeting on voucher schools and attend the Catholic schools meeting with the governor and the bishop?
