That post says nothing about that friend who is a he. It was a relative that was a she. She is not a liar and other relatives knew how much she made.

The rest is just your usual high horse drivel.
In your opinion. I've worked plenty of educators and at least one well-known educator, who even was invited to the White House under Reagan and and is an author of books on how to do it. It's one of the easiest things in the world if you have the right system and methods. These folks are critical of how reading is currently taught. They primarily worked as remediators who repaired and turned students around. Although they started as teachers.

There are crappy teachers, the vast majority are extremely hardworking professionals who are continually seeking best practices to improve a highly fluid instructional setting.
Actually, the gamut is that there are a few great teachers, a few poor ones and the ones in-between are mediocre. It's the training and the system.

Tutoring is admirable, but isn't remotely the same has handling the instructional load of a full class load of children with varying abilities across the curriculum.
Tutoring is teaching. I did in in small groups as well as individual. Most were ESL too.

We actually do a pretty decent job at teaching literacy, and I would grant that with most children it can seem easy.
I beg to differ. We have too much functional illiteracy. Roughly 40% are below basic levels of proficiency per our own DoE.

That said it has nothing to do with the quality of the teachers or their value for they are paid.
It has everything to do with how teachers have been trained to teach reading. There's been too many fads, adopted, which dropped tried and proven methods. This is another problem with the education racket. Phonics, systematically, taught is the best way to teach reading. It works and even in a classroom setting. Of course, one-on-one can go faster.

I did not mean to degrade your efforts, but your comments are a shallow reflection of reality at best.
Of course, this is just opinion. I go by results...and they are lacking. Keep your head in the sand though. The educators I've worked with say you're wrong and thing the system is a mess.
