    Welp, this is certainly fucked up. Can you imagine going to Walmart there and your teacher is sacking your groceries cuz' they need to make a payment by the end of the month?

    Wages for teaching are shit, and the shortage will only get to the point where there might not be many teachers left in the state. Oklahoma isn't the only state that has to deal with shortage of teachers; I know Florida is going through the shortage. Between shit wages and an Exam that's nearly impossible to pass, it's bound to happen.
    We're bound to reach crisis-levels of shortages...

    Wow, that is messed up on so many levels. T_T Our educational system and teachers need to be valued a lot more.

    the average citizen only needs to know how to read basic words, write phonetically and manage simple addition and subtraction...

    these are all things we learn well before the 5th grade; everything aside from that is daycare that became a necessity due to liberal child labor laws.

    Not fully inaccurate, much of what is in schools is just the same thing repeated at you over and over.

    University level teachers, some may need more respect. Wat is the worse that happens if i do not value a high school teacher?

    As a leftist why do you like Prussian style factory learning for 12 years?

    Not sure if I’m understanding your point, but one could say that the formative years of a young person’s mind matter far more. College is elite in a sense but the early foundations of learning matter a great deal.

    Primarily because there are some things that everyone needs to know in order to be a functioning and decent member of society. And the baseline of required education to get a job actually seems to be rising as automation and outsourcing make more and more low-skilled jobs superfluous.

    And secondarily to give all students a common frame of reference, which fosters social cohesion. If everyone regardless of race, religion or locality learns the same curriculum at school, then they will have a better foundation to understand and communicate with people from other communities than their own.

    It's only going to get worse. When you have a group of people who stack the deck in their children's favour, why would you trust them to invest money in the system that educates your children? So that all kids will compete on an even playing field?

    Might as well have been, I'm surprised the struggles Oklahoma are suffering weren't bigger news, this is the first I have heard of it. The biggest fear I have is that its just going to get swept under the rug, like the tax reform and reduced regulations will fix the issue.
