I’ve always said all a good teacher needs to teach is a stick and a patch of dirt… and I’m a techie.I've said it for years--schools are a microcosm of our society, and we have some "issues" in our society.
Proper education requires the factors – a competent teacher, willing students, and a suitable curriculum.
