I grew up in Atlanta, so I have a different educational background than what my kids are experiencing now, but Utah teachers have it pretty easy. Atlanta teachers had to force themselves through those first few years of work just to feel comfortable coming each day. My classmates and I were crazy undisciplined. But my children are surrounded by peers who come from good homes. Even the most undisciplined kid here is miles ahead of where I was a child in the south.
