Linda Ingmanson, NYTimes teacher comments

Teaching has become a punitive career. Anyone going into it now must be smokin' crack or have a secret desire to be whipped and humiliated. So sad that it's gotten to this point. There's a reason teachers are abandoning the profession in droves. Expecting teachers to make all students good in all things by a certain date is like telling doctors they have to cure all their patients of all diseases by a certain date "because I said so!"
