John Kass of the Chicago Tribune wrote a wonderful column about the newly released documents on victims of pedophile priests in the Chicago area.
Here’s a particularly poignant quote from one of the victims:

I have 3 family members (two that teach in the Wisconsin public school system) and some good friends that are school teachers. Nothing is more important for future adults than an outstanding education. Everyone knows teachers that have mentored them and positively affected their future lives. The teachers I know entered the field to contribute and make a difference. A great teacher deserves every penny of an adequate income and wonderful benefits afforded them.
With that said, here’s an illustration for those that dare to join the profession for the monetary benefits alone.
