The CATO Institute says all teachers “want is to get compensated as richly as possible while not being held accountable for their performance”

From their piece about Jeb Bush and the Common Core: Once again, we have to visit our ol’ buddies, concentrated benefits and diffuse costs. Put simply, the people with the most at stake in a policy area will have the greatest motivation to be involved in the politics of that area, and in education those are the schooling employees whose very livelihoods come from the system. And being normal people like you or me, what they tend to ideally want is to get compensated as richly as possible while not being held accountable for their performance.

If that is what a normal person is like then I am glad I am not a normal person but furthermore I don't know many normal people. Most people I know take pride in their jobs and want to do a good one and more than a few entered professions where much of their compensation came from the knowledge they benefited others. 

But more than insulting teachers aren’t they insulting everybody? Aren’t they saying everybody is lazy? It’s almost like a creature from a different species wrote above.

Well what about it friends are you a normal person? Is getting paid the most you can for doing very little all you care about?
