    Why am I not surprised. Once in a great while, we read or hear about an amazing teacher; However, for the rest? I have no respect for teachers at all. They hate the old saying about Teachers teach because they can’t do anything else (paraphrase, more than likely).

    In graduate School at Texas A&M. M.S. in Counseling: Teachers working on their Masters Degree to be School Counselors were also in some of our classes.

    During the very first test during the very first Semester, I noticed that all of the teachers were sitting at the back of the room with their books open during a test asking each other “what page was that answer on?” They didn’t care we could hear them. They “were allowed to openly cheat”.

    During a course in Advanced Psychology. AGAIN, During the Mid-Semester and Final Exams, they had their books out in plain sight; and no one said a word. The ONLY people who weren’t allowed to cheat were White and getting a M.S. in either Psychology or Counseling.
