The best is enemy of the good. The profoundest truths are paradoxical.

North Carolina Teachers' March On Raleigh: A Conversation On Friend A's Facebook Page
I see all the nasty comments on here about the teacher's march and most of them are made by people who never worked as a teacher a day in their lives. The mouths are running like a faucet.
The teachers I know and respect are all boycotting this march. That says a lot!
Jordan Bryan Pietz replied
I taught at Orange High School for seven years and "public instruction" is the hardest job in the world.
My wife -- a high-end RTP public health project coordinator -- shadowed me for half a day and that night over dinner confessed: "I don't know how you do it. I couldn't do that for a day, much less as a career!"
North Carolina teachers are abusively underpaid. (And those who want teahers to stay that way are an indicator of the expensive educational work yet to be done.)
I harbor profound admiration for every courageous soul who joins the teachers' march - using "people power" to pursue economic justice, simultaneously resisting the idiocratic juggernaut of our benighted state assembly.
