I love sports. Athletes have long stood at the forefront of the nation's conscience. We track their stats, draft them in fantasy leagues, and watch hours of sporting events and the talk shows that come before and after.
As a child, I wanted to become a professional baseball player, but the fact that I couldn't hit prevented me from my dreams. Today, I returned to a thought I have had in the past: teachers being treated like athletes.
If in order to earn six figures as a teacher, we had to endure the paparazzi, endless talking heads bantering about our performance, or reporters critiquing us, would we take it?
