The Value of Education — and Teachers

The Somewhat Daily RAG:

A pharmacist friend in Jasper, Alberta said that she was appalled at the seemingly light sentences given to abusers who kill children while someone murdering a police officer gets a life sentence.
Her take on this disparity was, “How do you know that if this child grew up he wouldn’t become a policeman?”
An interesting and provocative take which I recalled when thinking of the value of education and our teachers who seem to be under attack these days as overpaid (whoever though a teacher could be accused of that?) and greedy.
