My apologies are needed here too...and I also enter mine for my knee-jerk
reaction earlier today...I guess that my sensitivity to the issue arises
from the fact that our profession is being attacked from all sides <witness
the move to privatize public education by issuing the "Big Lie" and all its
attendant little lies>. I just felt that we did not need to perpetuate the
myth that "those who can't, teach."
