-- — The Rant re: teachers shouldn't have to take work home because other professionals don't is ridiculous. If you want to be treated as the professional you profess to be, realize you do the work that has to be done. Doctors are on call or working extra hours at clinics, accountants work 16- hour days during tax season and beyond, lawyers frequently work on weekends to catch up. And beyond just getting the work done, most of them have the burdens of paying employees as motivation as well.
I’m sure the readers of this column are sick of hearing about the sewage problem. I sympathize with you but enough is enough. I think we all get the point—old problem needs to be fixed, period.
