The sad thing is that I genuinely believe that most teachers enter the profession to provide a quality education to children; however, they are almost immediately derailed and forced to comply with the left’s agenda.
In the case of my sister in law, she was raised by parents who knew that a state job was a golden ticket, and the higher up you go the better. Her father was the president of a high profile state union here until his retirement at an early age. She was not a teacher very long, as that is not where the big bucks were waiting. She got to be a vice principal and then principal very quickly. She never wanted to teach kids. She is so stuck up we can’t stand her anymore. The money has changed her and she flaunts it so boorishly.
How my husband escaped that home as a conservative is a miracle. He does kid me once in a while, like telling me he voted for Obama...I say if he goes all liberal on me I am changing the locks on the doors and he can sleep in the barn.
I know some very dedicated and good hearted public school teachers. I recently found out that one is even a conservative, as she offered a funny comment about Joe Biden. I was pleased that she is not the usual union teacher. Another teacher I got to know, has had to find other work in the last year and tells me there are too many teachers here. She is a nice person and would be a great teacher.
