The Best of All Possible Worlds

Joanne Jacobs points to a survey that says teachers today like teaching more nowadays than in the past, and reasonably concludes, "I guess the happy teachers are the quiet teachers."

I'm one of the biggest complainers I know, though, and I love teaching. Teaching makes for very little of what I complain about--you can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall the last time I complained about teaching.

Now the people who run the city school system, the people who reflexively vilify those of us who do the actual work, and the people who've barely set foot in a public school but fancy themselves experts---they're another thing entirely.
