Seems like you can't go one week without someone posting a thread or story which portrays teaches or students in a negative light. Where is this coming from, I don't remember this amount of negative feelings towards teachers or students when I was younger.

A lot of teachers belong to unions, under attack by the right-wing. I haven't seen anything about students, good or bad.

Because things are getting really bad in our public school systems. Anti-Americanism and anti-Capitalism is turning into the norm. I don't remember that either when I was in school.

Maybe teachers and/or students should stop engaging in behavior that portrays them in a negative light.

Do you judge people by their intentions or their actions???
