Where have all the (prospective) teachers gone? Why are teachers quiting?

Mike Pompeo is a graduate of West Point and Harvard Law School, served during the Trump administration as head of the CIA and Secretary of State, he is well-educated, and  apparently is running for president if Trump falls by the wayside or needs a vice presidential candidate.
