Doctors and lawyers wouldn't allow this shit.
Most people don't realize how difficult it is to teach school. Only a small part of what teachers know and can do is obtained in colleges of education. Most of their competence is a result of years of experience working with children who are totally different from each other -- different personalities, different abilities, and different needs. If a teacher survives the first five years, the chances of staying on are much better.
It takes at least 10 years for a teacher to start assimilating the subtle nuances of interacting with a great variety of students and at least another 10 years for one to attain the skills of a master teacher. Then with added love, great teaching becomes extraordinary.
Few of us without family connections are ALLOWED to last that long in education.
