TEACHERS
========

After being interviewed by the school administration, the eager
teaching prospect said:

"Let me see if I've got this right.

You want me to go into that room with all those kids and fill
their every waking moment with a love for learning." And I'm
supposed to instill a sense of pride in their ethnicity, modify
their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse and
even censor their T-shirt messages and dress habits.

You want me to wage a war on drugs and sexually transmitted
diseases, check their backpacks for weapons of mass destruction,
and raise their self-esteem.

You want me to teach them patriotism, good citizenship,
sportsmanship, and fair play, how and where to register to vote,
how to balance a checkbook, and how to apply for a job.

I am to check their heads for lice, maintain a safe environment,
recognize signs of antisocial behavior, offer advice, write
letters of recommendation for student employment and
scholarships, encourage respect for their elders and future
employers.

And I am to communicate regularly with the parents by letter,
telephone, newsletter, and report card.

All of this I am to do with just a piece of chalk, a computer, a
few books, a bulletin board, and a big smile AND on a starting
salary that qualifies my family for food stamps!

You want me to do all of this, and you expect me NOT TO PRAY?"
