Back 30 years ago, my sister was an education major. She went for 3 years in education. She did a lot of student teaching. One of our schools in the county, a poor black neighborhood, was one of the places she did some student teaching. She told me she watched while the teacher slammed first/second graders into the walls. After that, my sister changed her major to general studies. And then went to law school.
Education lost someone who would have made an awesome teacher because of how they were abusing children in front of student teachers. That, and she realized that the way they control the lesson plans, etc, and the tenure system, it would be next to impossible for her to make a serious difference starting out as a teacher.
Either way, I think Shakespeare had it right when he wrote, "The Evil men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones..." There can be tens of thousands of good teachers, good bus monitors, good police officers, good doctors, but you will remember the bad ones.
