Mike salutes the Teachers

Although several of them have been my adversaries at one point or another, what I’ve learned about education during the last few years has given me about as much empathy for the teachers as it has for the kids. These poor teachers (especially the younger ones) are spoon-fed dribble, lied to, brainwashed, intimidated into silence and/or compliance, required to spend their own time & money for professional development, most of which is garbage, and that which does have value should have been part of their training before they ever stepped into a classroom.

Here’s a toast to all you teachers out there. You certainly earn your way, and are endowed with a much better temperance than I.
