Sure, some teachers are lazy and overpaid, just as any other worker can be. However, to suggest that is typical by comparing today with an idealized version of yesterday ignores reality. Wages need to increase with the rise in the cost of living, class sizes have gone up, and many of today's parents don't teach their kids to be respectful, and expect the school system to take on the responsibility of raising them. And no, I'm not a teacher, union member or shill.
