Does Mr. Weitzel [Public owns system, June 17 Letters, Langley Advance] not realize that teachers are taxpayers and parents as well?
What is he basing his judgment on when he calls teachers â€œself-righteous?â€ Does he realize that most teachers take work home with them and spend time during weekends and summer vacation, lesson planning and prepping for the next school year?
I often drop my own children off at their extra curricular activities and then sit in the car doing my marking and prep work.
Self-righteous? I think that before anyone criticizes teachers they should spend some time in a classroom and see what it is like.
