Superman Does Not Exist and Teachers' Unions are Not the Villains

I generally love the ideas you've postulated, especially support for schools nationwide and parents, plus continual development. Ideas are dynamic and teachers should indeed keep up.

Just a side note, even Superman does have sidekicks to aid him. Cartoon buffs would link the man in a red cape to Batman and teams like the Justice League. He might have to shoulder much of the physical burden, but he does need skills from other super heroes.
