There are enemies and there are enemies. You can choose to stay in the system
even recognizing how destructive it is. You stay for the kids. Some kids will
really appreciate you for it. And if you leave, knowing what you know about the
phony-baloney bureaucrap of it all, your kids are likely to get somebody less
sensitive and more clueless. This can keep a teacher in the system.
