Make-a-List Monday: Teachers

This list is of MPs who were schoolteachers or college professors. I decided to include retired teachers, substitute teachers and student teachers, but not people who were just education majors in college, and not ones who had quit their education jobs to pursue other careers.

My dad is a professor of biology at Ohio State. Michael’s dad is a teacher; he taught high school Spanish and history, and since his retirement he’s taught Spanish at a local college off and on. Michael has held teaching jobs too; right now he’s a full-time tutor. One of my nephews is also a teacher, high school science I think.

Education is essential in any society and a good teacher can make an enormous difference in the life of a young person, but teaching is a very difficult job, and in the U.S. — not sure about other countries — teachers are underpaid and underappreciated.

    There’s a good podcast about Tara Grinstead called Up and Vanished, check it out!

    Oh, wow. I can’t believe they acquitted and eventually released Carolyn Brown’s husband, James. Admittedly, all I know about the case is what you’ve written, but it seems hugely unjust that he’s free. Those poor children.

      I wrote about it more here: https://charleyross.wordpress.com/2013/12/29/select-it-sunday-the-brown-family/

      I think that in general, way more people ought to be found not guilty by reason of insanity than currently — we’ve got so many bat-guano crazy people who are in prison, including one guy on death row who was murdering people because he thought God was going to cause a horrible earthquake that would break California off from the mainland US and kill millions if he didn’t “sacrifice” a person here and there. But James Brown doesn’t sound like he was actually insane. He tried to cover up his crimes, which is an indication that he knew what he was doing was wrong — the very definition of sanity.

    It is kind of unreal to me that Tara Grinstead was never found and that her name isn’t way more out there. I have a feeling there is way more to her story. I hope though, that at some point there is some movement in this case, because it feels solvable to me.
