I saw this on FB posted by a teacher and I absolutely agree with her.
We live in a society that is proud of its sin. To think that the teachers of your children are somehow exempt from that pride is folly. There’s no telling what the teachers of your children are doing. And what they’re doing matters.
On the other hand, it is possible to know exactly what the teachers of your children do, down to the last glorious, or dirty, rotten detail. And you can even know how they feel about what they do and what they think about what they do, and how they respond to what they do when the one doing it is you.
What they’re doing in politics is downstream of culture, and what they’re doing in culture is downstream of the schoolhouse. So I couldn’t agree more. It does matter what the teachers of your children are doing. That’s why I’m an advocate of making it irrelevant, at least as far as your own children are concerned, what… they do.
