I think we can summarize this opinion piece masquerading as a "News" article with this quote.

"There are some wonderful teachers in Pleasanton, ones that put the kids first and foremost. To them teaching is a life choice, not a job. But there are others for which it is a job and looking out for No. 1 is the end game. Those are the dangerous ones."
