This Just In: Teachers Work as Hard As Students!

September 24, 2013

A Facebook friend posted an article from The Atlantic bemoaning the fact that his 8th grade daughter has a massive amount of homework. While another post is needed to address that concern, I was troubled by the fact that the writer, Karl Greenfield, overlooked the fact that teachers are working every bit as hard as the students…. which led me to make this comment:

Here’s what Karl Greenfield fails to acknowledge: the teachers work as hard as the students! They put in a full day of work and then go home or spend time on weekends grading papers and preparing lessons for the next day. Oh… and some of them coach, or attend school events, or (gasp) work a second job to help pay their bills.
