Editor's Note: After Tuesday night’s AC360°, viewers complained about the education segment being cut short. They understand that breaking news comes first but felt that the Chris Brown/Rihanna segment could have been sacrificed to continue longer on with the discussion. Many of you were split on the actual discussion with some saying that the education reform bill focuses on the teachers and it should focus more on the students and parents. What do you think?
To make room for the Alabama shootings, you cut out a segment on education, but kept in (yet another) segment on Rihannna? Bad choice – I just turned Anderson 360 off.
We have yet another "education reform" bill that focuses accountability on the teachers, not on the kids. As a teacher, I can attest that teachers have one of the most difficult, demanding jobs in this country. It is our job to try to teach too many kids that would rather be ANYWHERE but in class, doing ANYTHING but learning. When will the success of education be placed on the students and their parents? Teachers are being asked to work harder and harder to get the kids to learn when they (and apparently their parents) don't value education.
