  1. No matter how much funding goes to the U.S. Department of Education, substitute teachers always get treated the same way.

    Substitute teachers with backgrounds in mathematics and science continue to be overlooked or ignored in favor of people with lesser skills that have met education department criteria. Nothing ever changes.

    Even though it is urgent that our nation invest in math and science education, the funding invariably ends up supporting administration, scholarly studies or university programs while those with the correct mathematics and science backgrounds slog it out in the trenches without proper support, understanding or evaluation.
