It’s rare that I feel ashamed to be a teacher but after reading this article it makes me feel like I am a no good lout who is living off the fat of the tenured land idling away my time at the great expense of our nation’s kids.
Good work, L.A. TImes. Another form of “If it bleeds, it leads,” I guess.
I mean I want these people out of the class as well. But how I come this article makes me feel as if my whole profession is filled with nothing but louts and scumbags? And just in time for the statewide California election in a few weeks when people are going to vote on school funding. Only like 9 billion dollars on the line.
Do enough bad apples not spoil the perception of the whole bunch?
