Teacher Shuts Down Plane Passenger’s Ignorant Question About Her Job
“I wish I hadn’t been so snotty to that guy, but it was fun.”
National Education Association president Lily Eskelsen García had an interesting encounter on an airplane recently. When she was seated next to a rather ignorant man who asked her to name the “one” solution to fixing public education, she gave him a pretty brilliant answer. Garcia then goes on to describe the wonderful things teachers do every day to help and educate their students.
