Old Texan

I have worked at a school system as bus driver and as substitute teacher in what is now called "Resource" for children with emotional, physical, or mental problems, slow learners and those that just can't learn. As a bus driver, I drove students and teachers on field trips and sports meets.
I was not in any way qualified to work with these children. I did it because the other teachers wouldn't and it was difficult to hire teachers who would. That has been 10 years ago and I am still in contact with some of these children, now adults. So I must have done something right.
I have also worked as a janitor in a large aerospace company. As a union member, I could "bump" down to a lesser labor grade, if I qualified for it. Over the years, I went straight down from a Class A Inspector to Janitors.
I got to know some of the teachers rather well, professionally and personally. Many years ago I, dated a teacher (14 years )and airline stewardess who became a psychologist, PhD. and school counselor in one of the largest school districts in the US. I am retired and work on a small hunting and cattle ranch in NW Texas. The owner is a retired school principal and math teacher.
I'm giving my background so you can know, what I believe to be my qualifications to answer the question.
Your background checks on your janitors and cleaners are more thorough than those done on teachers (read, little or none.) A person gets a teacher's certification and never have to be re-qualified in the subject they teach.
So to answer the question, "Are Janitors more responsible than teachers?" The answer is an unqualified, emphatic YES.
You had to ask. The long answer is that if I had school-aged children, they would be home schooled.
