Well, I must be living in a different world because around here, almost all of the public school teachers are dyed-in-the-wool liberal Democrats. On top of that, all of my friends who went to college to become teachers, even the ones that were staunch conservatives beforehand, are now also liberals. It was heartbreaking seeing my best friend-- who I specifically warned that this could happen-- fall into the trap. I didn't speak to her for years, although fortunately we are on good terms again.
Maybe it's the fact that the area I'm from is quite poor with very few quality jobs, but even a rookie teacher around here makes more than most of the taxpayers who fund their salary. It's a grievous disconnect: well-paid teachers demanding more and more money that the people just don't have.
Needless to say, I don't trust them. 'Course, I didn't trust Ted Cruz either (my rule of life #3 is never trust a Harvard grad) and he's turned out very good so far.
