I have a tendency to take my hat off to teachers, at least those I know are giving it their all. My mother was a teacher for most of 30 years... and saying the two of us didn't get along would be like saying Genghis Khan dabbled in real estate. My wife is a teacher as is a brother in law. The pay sucks and the appreciation is non existant but the knowledge that a young mind has been opened to knowledge. And many of those young minds will forever fondly remember the teachers that opened that door. I know I do to this day... though it was a college professor and not a grade or secondary school teacher.

Many a teacher has been the pathway to want for higher education for a child. Ole is quite right, it has to at least start at home.
