1. I'd rather they just treated us like the banks.

5. Sorry donco
It's just that it doesn't feel like being a teacher, especially a public one, is something people respect anymore. Sorry if I was a little touchy.

7. Believe me, no need to apologize.
Around here, it's open season on anything Public Ed. Not sure why that is, but look for the pile on.

6. Thank You

8. Alas, they are clueless. Depressingly so.
It would also help if they sent their own kids to public schools.
