Mr. Farkel, I beg to differ. Our teachers oft times thrive in spite of crushing red-tape and asinine bureaucracy. Our teachers are always the first one to feel the brunt of fiscal cuts. One glance at our superintendent's girth is proof enough that bureaucrats never feel fiscal hardship. More proof? How about the superintendent's buddy Mike McGowan? How many times does this alcoholic need to be arrested for DUI before his buddy Dr. P fires him? If McGowan was a teacher, he'd be out of a job.
