  •  In a school emergency, teachers ARE first (1+ / 0-)

    responders.  Most teachers are in that profession because they care for their students.  They are notoriously overworked, underpaid, and often not given the respect they deserve.  They are often scapegoated for the bad educational outcomes of an antiquated and underfunded American education system that is still based on an agrarian economy from about 100 years ago.  They are used as a straw man for those whose agenda is to weaken and destroy unions and privatize education and most other areas of our economy.  It is time that we give teachers the same respect that we do police, firefighters, and the military.  

    After all, we rely on them to care for and educate our children every day.
