We like our stories to have a villain? How about our national obsession with teachers as unqualified heroes? Teachers are great, my kids go to public school. But in most states they are generously compensated and can retire with a full pension in as early as their 50s, some 20 years before us non-public servants.

That's so messed up that the "fixing this" letter basically says "congratulations for all the stress we have caused you, just kidding you didn't do anything wrong!" 😡 Teachers deserve way more than that!
