2. I don't see why anyone should be treated like a pro athlete

 

and that includes pro athletes along with corporate CEOs, banksters like Dimon and Blankfein, and the Dancing Supremes.

3. why not let schools trade teachers?

There would have to be some rules, of course, but why not allow a school to trade a star teacher to another school for a few promising young teachers in other subjects where the school has needs?

4. Excellent!

We watched this today at teacher orientation.
I love Key and Peele, but this just seals the deal.
