Letter to the editor: Question for teachers

Let me get this straight. grocery store workers can show up to do their jobs, interact with hundreds of strangers daily, so you can buy food to feed yourself and your children, but you won’t show up to teach their children?
Retail workers and food service workers show up to do their jobs, providing goods & services to your family, but you won’t show up to teach their children? Medical personnel, dental office personnel and first responders all show up to do their jobs to provide health and welfare for you & your family, but your won’t show up to teach their children? If you no longer have a heart for teaching our children, children, who will be the same children daily in your classroom in a controlled environment, then step aside. Resign. Give up your paycheck so that the funds can be used to hire teachers currently unemployed as teachers, or the dozens of new teachers who have recently graduated from college. Teachers who do still have a heart for educating our children and who would love to show up in the classroom and do their jobs. Step aside so your funds can be given to the parents, grandparents, or others who have already stepped in to do your jobs. Step aside so funds can used for vouchers so parents can send their children to private schools who still love educating children in classrooms.
Defund teachers if they no longer want to show up and do their jobs.
