|Shane, I've run across a few who, and I thank God mine never got into, were teachers in name only. Some really incredible dolts are there marking time and feeding the little buggers who knows what.
A real teacher, and I include Miss Susan, is a precious asset. Somehow, we have to figure out which are real and which just got the degree and are working toward retirement. But if we don't do it, it ain't going to get done. The teacher is a tool, and one would hope that it is a fine tool. But if one doesn't send that kid out knowing that he or she is expected to learn, the teacher is irrelevant.
