the time, money, and energy the NEA puts into issues like same sex marriage, abortions, homosexuality, womens rights, etctra, is excessive when we have students graduating who have great difficult with reading or struggle with basic math skills. the NEA's powerful hold on education today leaves them mostly responsible for the holes we have in our education. it is not only the faulty curriculum, but most importantly the failing teachers who the NEA hides, defends, supports, and so on; sticking by their constant cry of not enough pay, however is that an excuse to pass students who should have been held back years ago? the most disturbing problem with the NEA is when they brag about the success of their million dollar programs that are supposed to increase reading and writing skills, math skills, and overall education; the issue occurs when barely a quarter of students show positive results. how can anyone boast and petition funds for programs that are not
The noise level in Cottingham is a problematic issue for students, because it is hard for them to go to sleep at a decent hour when it is extremely noisy.

Jeremy Reed English 1101 Section 104 Jack Ehn October 29, 2014 Against School I can relate to John Taylor Gatto. "Against School" As I look at my kids as they do their homework it seems challenging at times, or I find them being bored with it and wanting to either do more work or not wanting to do any work at all.

Kaitlyn Stevens Mr. Scott Reed ENGL 0003.001 19 July 2011 Overcoming my distractions Throughout my years of education, I have had to overcome many obstacles.
