    I have had enough with the public education system. I'm tired of whiny parents threatening to sue me over their failures to prepare their children for school, I'm tired of conniving students getting me into trouble with false allegations, I'm tired of teaching to the test, I'm tired of having to plan being sick in advance, I'm tired of having parents ask me how to discipline their children and then argue with me about my advice, I'm tired of working in a system that rewards working hard with more work and less pay.

    Because of all of this, I'm taking the LSAT and going to apply to Law School. It's time for things to be all about me! (Hobbit - I promise not to be a criminal lawyer who tries to get the guilty go free!) I hope to become a patent or real estate lawyer, something safe, boring, and profitable.

    Just go teach at the college level.

    They don't ask anything of you there, not even sanity or the semblance of logical thought.

    You can do whatever you want.

    Stick around for 10-12 years and your grad students will do all your work and you'll have a guaranteed job for life.

    Just don't be a lawyer.

    You know, Z just might have a point here. You just might be able to influence . for the good, ALOT of young people at the college level. Of course, you'll be shunned by the other faculty.

    Well, feel things out for sure. Just keep a low profile at first. Once tenure is yours break out the flag and hang it in the corner.

    Want public school salary. :) Also want to teach older kids, especially after today! Hormonal girls crying from 11:15-2:00. I'm tired and soggy. I've never had to carry a box of tissues all day. :rolleyes:
