10. You don't have to tell me about teaching. I have been there.

But the workplace abuse is horrendous, and the privatization movement may succeed in getting rid of real teaching altogether in favor of online "teaching."

The starry-eyed naivete will soon give way to fear and apprehension. You may think it won't happen to you, but it doesn't take much, let me tell you, for your career to be ruined. Then try and get a teaching job somewhere else; it is virtually impossible.

All of those years of studying down the drain, tons of debt still to pay, and then being forced to start all over.

I don't recommend teaching to anybody in this climate.
