No, I take that back. It's been that way when my older sister started teaching 10 years before I did.<quoted text>
That's the only reason teachers today want more money, Homer. They are underappreciated and held accountable for everything under the sun without the liberal seat warmers in the office giving a damn about anything except their retirement and not being sued. That's the God's honest truth.
It's even worse today than it was two decades ago when the seat warmers in my schools didn't give a damn even back then.
When she first sent a high school student to the office for throwing spitwads in her classroom and the student returned with a note telling her to deal with it herself, she knew she had made the wrong career choice - just like me.
You just have to cope as best you can.
Progressive liberalism in public schools goes way back. Now students can curse out their teachers with absolutely no repercussions and violence among students in the public schools has become an epidemic.
Welcome to your world, Homer.
