Also about education, students, and areas+267For about the first five years of school, English classes should focused on grammar and vocabulary. Then, the focus can shift to areas such as literature and composition. With this system, students still receive sufficient education in all areas, but hopefully there would be less people with a serious lack of grammar skills. amirite?

Also about teachers and students+271Both students and teachers suffer; but the difference is that teachers get paid for suffering while students PAY to suffer, amirite?
Also about teachers and students+212If teachers can give students due dates for turning in assignments, students should be allowed to give due dates for when they have to grade and return the assignment. amirite?
Also about teachers and students+417Teachers should get paid a much larger salary. After all they ARE basically giving students their future and teaching them what they know to use in the real world. Teachers make students get the successful jobs, because of what they teach and how much they're pushing the student. Yes, the motivation also comes from the student, but the teacher primarily is the one who motivates them to do well,... amirite?
Also about education, teachers, and students+4We always hear about a need for new taxes to help our schools. I'm not buying it. One of the big pushes for legalization of marijuana here in Colorado was that the money would be used for education. Last year, Colorado collected over 260 million in marijuana taxes. Not one penny went to teachers or students. Now they want to increase property taxes and other taxes, to support our schools, once again. Where the hell is the money going and why aren't corrupt politicians being held accountable?
Also about education, teachers, and students+76We need more specialist in the US government. For example, when making decisions about education in the US, we should involve teachers parents principals and students. Not just a bunch of people with political science majors. Amirite?
Also about deserve, teachers, and students+170A good way to increase teacher pay would be to have all people making ridiculous amounts of money in the sports/entertainment industry to give up a chunk of their salary and give it to the schools in their state. This way, we could pay teachers what they deserve, and have smarter students capable of conducting the jobs that we'll need for the future, amirite?
