A Bubble Test Question for Teachers
Q: Why do so few teachers take a stand and voice their opinion publicly while their profession is being devalued and trampled upon?

A: You may "bubble" in one or more responses:

Too busy with teaching and/or family responsibilities

Uncomfortable dealing with conflict

Fearful of school administration and of the possibility of receiving poor performance evaluations and/or of losing one's teaching position

Raised in a home and/or in school culture which values a "Be Nice" approach at all costs

Believe that speaking out won't make a difference

  Believe that it's the responsibility of the teacher unions and teacher professional organizations to speak out for its members
