This is a quick “FYI – check out this other blog posting post”.

If you ever though your child’s teacher or teachers were immature, undereducated, or simply not ready to teach then Click Here to read a post from Yoani Sanchez out of Cuba. It will put things into perspective the next time you complain about bad teachers in America.

    Thanks for putting Yoaniscomment page on track. In my opinion the comments to a blog post should focus on the topic of the post. All the other stuff is relevant of course but …… you know what I mean

      …. and I agree, but:
      A touch of sarcasm has always been part of the posts in SWB. The point subtly being presented was that we, in the US complain when well trained teachers are not seen as the best in our country (because we like to complain about everything) – where teaching as a job is seen as good and respectable. In Yoani’s article it seems as the teaching profession is presented as a profession of last resort and the teachers are not well trained. In other words – appreciate what you have because others wish they had it. No disrespect is meant towards Yoani – as she is well liked by SWB and considered an excellent writer.

      BTW – if there was a comment link on her Generation Y site, it was probably automatically created by a ping-back.
