Read the rules closely and you can figure out it bans opening a BitCoin bank in NY. Basically, if you take deposits it needs to 100% back by BitCoins, so no fractional reserve banking.

You can't use bitcoin for fractional reserve banking; the system itself doesn't support it. Legislation banning fractional reserve banking in BTC is like legislation banning the sun from rising in the west.

Teachers are under attack....

There's a lot of truth to what you say; your observations are among the reasons why I describe the situation as "sad'.

However, it is possible to work in teaching and not be subjected to the hardships you point out above. All the teachers I know personally love their jobs. Of course, they are fortunate enough to be employed by institutions that are insulated from a lot of the problems you mention.
