Even though a recent Gallup poll suggests that many in the public still hold teachers in high regard, many of us don’t feel like that.

Some people blame us for not doing enough to help students recover from “learning loss,” many states are banning books because they don’t trust our judgment to determine which ones to share with our students, and we’re being restricted about what we can say about LGBTQ issues.

Things are certainly different from when we could do no wrong during the worse of the COVID pandemic!

This sketch from last night’s Saturday Night Live show demonstrates how many educators feel.  In it, people on airplane are comparing how important their jobs are.  Teachers are booed – not once, but twice!
