(Cue the "we value our children" rhetoric.)
Story time: As a former teacher, in a free semester after finishing my
certification, I did a lot of substituting. I finally gave it up when I was
reading a newspaper which featured ads for both temporary janitors and
substitute teachers from the same school I was subbing in. The pay for the
temp janitors was higher than the pay for substitute teachers.
What amazed me even more was that when I talked to the principal and
pointed that out, he simply didn't have a problem with it. I was dumbfounded
-- it was a helluva lot easier and less responsibility to be a janitor (but
of course they don't get to wear a tie!:-).
While we sit comfortably using our computers, soldiers paid for with our taxes
are killing and torturing innocent people half a world away in order to steal
their oil; we have blood on our hands.
