    This is, of course, one of the main reasons why towns, states, and the Feds have been able to cut funding for all sorts of public services, while not having to face any real blowback. These are jobs that are largely held by people who are doing them because (a) they know the jobs need to be done, (b) they like doing those jobs, and (c) they have some human empathy in them.
    As a human being with an elementary-school-aged child, I applaud the decision to keep teaching. As someone who teaches in a public institution, I recoil in horror from the necessity of making that decision.
