I almost agree with you, but not about the "great majority"aspect. Truth is, the majority of teachers I know in public schools are good teachers. The problem is generally a combination of teachers unions' refusal to countenence any kind of performance-based component in regard to payscale or disciplinary actions, as well as misguided administration at all levels that push a progressive educational curriculum and agenda. In that environment, many otherwise good teachers go along to get along, having seen too many examples of what happens when a teacher attempted to buck the system and educate students in the tried-and-true methods of days gone by.
