No One Cares by Caring SCS Teacher


I don’t think it’s that big of a deal unless the asbestos is disturbed. One would think that loose tiles would define disturbed, but who knows? But really, who cares? No one does. What am I going to do? Put in a call to 1-800-noonegivesashi$? No one cared when I didn’t have air until I made a fool of myself. Then, I had air for a week until that solution broke. No one has cared that I don’t have heat either. Please! They refused to turn the heat on for the cleaning staff and secretaries who worked over the Christmas break. Refused! 

No one cares.


No one cared when board members blatantly lied about our superintendent's salary when voting on renewing his contract, complete with a raise before the old contract even expired. They want the highest paid superintendent, but teachers have the lowest salary in all of Shelby County.

No one cares that they have built in 27 snow days when the maximum number permitted by the state is 13! 

No one cares.

No one cares that we are teaching a curriculum that in no shape, form, or fashion aligns with our STATE mandated assessment. That’s just another way to ensure low teacher pay increases.

No one cares, well now they pretend to, that we pass children and they make it to high school reading on a 2nd grade level. They will find a way around this to.

No one cares that we provide intervention only to students who are at a minimum of 2 grade levels behind according to a test that is not approved by the state for RTI purposes.

No one cares that we consider all the other children to be on grade level.

No one cares how filthy our buildings are, and they certainly don’t care about the lack of nutrition we are feeding our students. 

No one cares.

No one cares about transparency, honesty, integrity, or decency. My concerns have proven time and time again to fall upon deaf ears. I wish I didn’t care.

🤔I'm pondering...Is this really who we are as a society?
