This genuinely made me cry. Heck yes, teachers.
Yeah, y’know what, Kiri?
It made me cry, too.
No, they don’t.
Everything here is self-serving lies.
Teachers bully, lie, harass. They abuse the kids under them, and then rope the parents into aiding and abetting a system whose sole purpose is the mental, emotional, and physical abuse of children.
Don’t sing to me the praises of teachers. School was hell, and the teachers my jailers.
Then you have my sympathies for poor teachers and a poor education. Then again, when teachers are paid a fraction of what they’re worth, given less and less resources with which to do the job society demands of them (and further expects them to then live, thrive, and retire upon that pure idealism alone), it’s hardly a wonder.
But you don’t get to malign the profession and all teachers any more than I get to praise them all.
The teachers who can deliver what the above promises are the gateway to our future.
To call the above self-serving lies is to retreat into petulance and self-pity. You’re angry at your education? You want to blame your teachers? I don’t know your experience, I don’t know how bad it was. I had bad teachers, and I had good ones. Me, I remember the good ones far more often than I do the bad ones.
