Teachers are vastly under appreciated in nearly every society in the world. they work hard, are generally under paid and are often hampered by administrations that have no idea how to, or what to, teach anyone let alone children. We have made their lives even more complicated by forcing them to teach things that they should never have to teach, things that are only important to egos, not knowledge. We cannot teach each other how to feel, or what to feel so we should stop before the lines between being a teacher and being a puppet forever blur into one.
How to celebrate – Thank those teachers you know that actually still teach. Maybe the US wouldn’t be behind Japan and China in education if we actually taught useful things. Stop trying to change society through children who don;t know better.
