This guy wants to be a teacher?

I read this New York Times article the other day and had the exact same reaction as Virginia Postrel. She puts it perfectly:

Blevins sounds like a fine man, the kind of person who makes communities--and supermarkets--work. Too bad the Times won't honor him for his real accomplishments, including finding a demanding career he's good at. (Most of his buyer colleagues have college degrees.) Instead, he's portrayed as a victim and the "happy ending" is that he's going back to college so he can get a job he's totally unsuited for. A guy who hates school this much doesn't belong anywhere near a classroom, least of all in front of one.

Read the article and ask yourself if you would want Blevins to teach your children.
