A teacher who invests time and effort into actually teaching children the way they learn is not as valuable as one who can follow a district lesson plan to the letter. More importantly, Alief saved a fat paycheck by getting rid of me. Trying to survive as a limousine driver/Community College teacher since the same thing happening to my uber-competent wife who refused to lower her grading standard. We didn't get the message that we were supposed to "pass everybody!"
