If half of the cops, and half of the teachers, switch jobs tomorrow. Lock the cops

guns in the safe, teachers go unarmed.

So you have people responsible for development and those responsible for arresting development try the other role.

I know the cops would run screaming after 1 day, 'cause you can't just shoot anything that annoys you. (Sigh. I kid. Sort of.) Think the teachers would go back?

There seems to be some crossover between the two fields.

2. I wouldn't want the police attitude in the classroom.

The cross over seems to come because a number of teachers are pretty authoritarian too.

4. I had an ex-military DI in primary school.

He had no control of the classroom plus he could only teach the military way. Wasted year.

5. A teacher would do well as a cop

because they have experience dealing with bullies.

But a cop probably wouldn't do well as a teacher, because the kids also have experience dealing with bullies.
