"Teachers"? Really?

In recent years, public (and some private) school teachers have been involved in activities that definitely fall outside their job description. Whether it be indoctrinating kids with multiculturalist garbage, engaging in illicit affairs with their underage charges, encouraging their illegal alien students to break the law, or simply using their unions to keep parents from being able to oversee what their children are "learning" teachers have been overstepping their bounds and mis-using their positions.

Now it appears that at least some teachers believe that somehow it is OK to flout the laws of the United States in front of their students. According to the WBEN 930AM radio station in Buffalo, New York, a substitute teacher was arrested for using what apparently was cocaine in front of her students.

Seems to me that this would be an excellent time to introduce the idea of charter schools, or maybe to revisit home-schooling. If we cannot trust teachers to behave when instructing our children, then maybe it is time to take control of the public school system ourselves.
