it’s honestly just so ugly, how the rhetoric around these school mass shootings often makes teachers the scapegoat.
the expectations put on teachers is unrealistic. it’s cruel to place the burden on teachers and students, expecting them to learn triage, to use guns, to barricade, etc., rather than having an authentic, serious, responsible dialogue about gun reform in regards to weapons that kill and wound en masse. it’s not a choice made from sanity or love.
all the while consistently criticizing and policing teachers, restricting/censoring what they teach and banning teaching materials. it’s some sick gaslighting abuser sh*t and it needs to stop.
i think this art illustrates the insanity of this time and our country in regards to how we value teachers.
