Teachers are now complaining about having to go back and do what they profess to love: Teach in a classroom.

While I have had some unfortunate experience with teachers unions in the past (as an observer, not a member), I was always convinced that the grievance from the professionals was based upon their desire to better the lives of and conditions for students. It really never occurred to me that someone who would enter one of the “service professions” would be hyper-focused on their own needs to the exclusion of their kids.

Are you seeing clients? Are you working in an office filled with other people right now?

If you can't answer yes to those questions, then you have no room to talk.
