Has it occurred to you that some of them take these jobs for the same reason that people join TFA? No...apparently only TFA people can do it out of the goodness of their heart, and other teachers do it because they aren't smart enough to do other things.
Disgusting. Lowlifes. These are words that you used. Let's make that clear. Took the jobs because it's the only thing they can do? I'd argue they took the job because it's a job. Most TFA people can confirm that a number of the teachers are there for a paycheck.
Yet TFA'ers who are applying to law school are different b/c they do it solely for the kids? Seriously dood, read your argument again.
