Something interesting happens with the "teachers are cops" discourse, where a surprising proportion of people engage with criticism of the scool system from the very liberal perspective of "you can't criticise schools - teachers are good people" and another, even more surprising proportion of people take criticism of the school system to mean "all teachers actually are cops".

My stance:

1. schools are bad

2. teaching is good

3. most teachers are amazing people

And by "schools are bad", I mean "abolish school as we know it"


@garfiald i really like this take more than the others I've seen.

Some teachers helped me figure shit out.

A lot of teachers are assholes, though.

@xanderpendrake it's a real feeling! god knows we've all dealt with some terrible teachers
