Why do we bother?

It's nice to know that your profession is held in such high esteem by the general public. The BBC has a story on the TUC's unpaid overtime survey, and the comments on "lecturers and their thirteen week paid holidays each year" are making me depressed and furious by turns.

Sadly, it's this myth that lecturers do nothing but sit around and think deep thoughts that has allowed governments to treat the university sector like shit for the last twenty-five years. It's very depressing that all these people seem to think that classes just happen, and that if you're not actually in front of a body of students, then you're not really working.
