Each year we demand more from educators within the same 180 days of school despite the loss of true instructional time that each new state and federal mandate brings.
Meanwhile, South Carolina has routinely ignored its own mandates on funding, class size, and alike for decades while expecting educators to follow each new requirement passed down to the letter.
We demand teachers produce the same results from students of various backgrounds, some of whom face tremendous obstacles, and go to schools with far fewer resources and opportunities than others.
