Adcomms are not the same "elite" people who look down on teaching like the previous person I quoted was talking about.
I didn't say adcomms, or anyone else, think that. I said it was funny, and typical, for a teacher to equate any knock on their profession as the equivalent of bigotry and hatred of the poor.
Well I guess you misunderstood my point. A lot of people who are considered "elite" look down the poor and minorities, but adcomms obviously don't. A lot of "elite" people look down on teaching but I don't think adcomms think this way. I think it's a mistake to equate the opinions of so called "elite" people on the subject of job prestige to the opinions of adcomms, who are obviously different.
