I know at least 30 teachers well. Nearly all of them advocate year-round schooling. They are thankful for holidays because they can catch up on the mounds of paperwork that can't be done during instructional time. I don't hear them complaining "all year." I see hard-working, dedicated people who do care about the kids despite fears for personal safety on a daily basis, being held accountable for things clearly outside their spheres of influence, and having to defend their profession to folks who haven't a clue about its inner workings. I used to sound just like you before I stepped into the trenches of urban education. Real world experience would quiet the glittering generalities made by misinformed people like yourself
