My post yesterday was entitled- "Are teachers Mad?"
Apparently some people who read the article were hoping that I had written about teachers being insane. I'm sorry if my word choice was a bit iffy. I was going for the "are teachers angry" angle, but those words just don"t have enough zip.
In any event , I'm sorry if the title was misleading. The point remains that I suspect that teachers are very angry. Since NCLB passed, they feel as though they are walking around with bulls-eyes on their backs.
The Wisconsin spectacle involves more than just teachers, but I fear that years of a lack of respect coupled with the new emphasis on cutting their benefits may be a bad formula.
So are teachers angry? To coin yet another phrase, "you betcha."
What do you folks think?
