    My brother was a teacher as well.  He taught in a pretty rough school district. There was so much wrong with the district, but he stuck it out.  He called it quits when a student assaulted him and he demanded that the student be suspended (expelled would have been better, but he knew that would be impossible) for the attack, but he had no support from the principal or the board (look the other way was the predominate reaction) and the kid kept going to school.  
    Well, making the motions of going to school, though, what the kid learned was not abc's, reading, writing and arithmetic, it was how to be an assaulter and get away with it.
    PS my brother left teaching and has had another job for over 30 years which has been quite successful.
