Two other educators, with about the same amount of experience as myself in this field, affirmed that they are looking to get out of teaching.

What is the real reason?
The behavior of the students in Philadelphia public schools has become so irriational, so distractive and disruptive, so insane that they have become essentially uneducable, except in several certain schools where students are selected by difficult criterion and security is maintained fiercely, for example Philadelphia Girls, Masterson and discipline schools such as Boone.
Philadelphia has had a serious problem with stanching the flow of teachers out of the system because of the intensification of these problems, but now with the situation spiralling out of control, it may become a stampeding exodus.
My fiance and I are considering moving to Arizona or someplace similar. I need to change my work life to something that feels productive and has a future. Because education is unimportant to Americans in real truth, and certainly is unimportant to the Government and its true masters (who want a stupid, happy and cheap workforce), there is a massive trend toward scripted education by equally undereducated personnel who will simply read to students and then grade their work.
There will be no intuitive teaching, and this trend, I believe, will evolve into the old prediction of robotized (computerized) classroom instruction in which children will simply be rote-instructed with cheap-labor-essential skills only. They will receive no education that allows them to analyze or critique the actions of government nor any of those above them; they will be obedient slaves from then on, and never be any wiser for it.
Make no mistake about it: Government and its masters consider it a waste and a liability to educate the American People, and they will do anything they can to pervert the educational process in order to create the kind of willing idiot they need to man the service-sector economy as the real jobs continue to be \'farmed out\' to cheap-labor meccas such as India and far Asia. This is going to be the end of American Labor as a social force, unless we can find a way to stop this.
The first problem to be overcome is to get all the idiot suburbanites to believe what we\'re saying; they only seem to believe what they\'re told and have no capacity to listen to anyone else. They just hang their heads out of their SUV\'s and whine about things they\'ve heard someone else say.
So, you see, the strategy has already been effective. We have... the idiots of Middle Management!
