I I I want to add an addendum here. It might sound as if I have contempt for teachers and the teaching profession. On the contrary, teaching is my profession and I have the GREATEST respect for those teachers who succeed in teaching young people IN SPITE OF the stupidity of administrators out for power, prestige, politics and profit. They see teaching as a calling and have chosen the profession in spite of the problems. It is the circle the wagons necessity that they must participate in, defending the indefensible, in order to keep their jobs that I find contemptuous. Will’s words above are only too true about a large percentage of our teachers, unfortunately. They will not challenge the status quo.
