Something interesting happens with the "teachers are cops" discourse, where a surprising proportion of people engage with criticism of the scool system from the very liberal perspective of "you can't criticise schools - teachers are good people" and another, even more surprising proportion of people take criticism of the school system to mean "all teachers actually are cops".

My stance:

1. schools are bad

2. teaching is good

3. most teachers are amazing people

And by "schools are bad", I mean "abolish school as we know it"


@garfiald Your take is good, and I actually would have assumed it would be the take of most folks on the left. I'm surprised you encounter the pushback you describe in the original post.
