No.

Teachers are the scapegoats for a society perfectly willing to send children to school who are not "classroom ready."

That means children who do not have enough parental supervision, children who have no structure in their lives, children who don't get enough sleep at home, children who live in such poverty that they are hungry and don't see doctors and dentists when needed, children who think anything on a page instead of a screen is "boring," and that it is the job of a teacher to entertain them.

And no, I am not a teacher.
