The long-term danger is to the teaching profession as a whole when the brightest graduates see that if they go into teaching then, without religion, their employment and promotion opportunities will be severely limited.

Even, putting that aside, they will also realise that, in some areas, they may not be able to teach openly, honestly and challengingly according to the best current knowledge or may be prevented from offering the fullest protection to bullied students.

The religious, on the other hand, can see opportunities employment and advancement purely on the fact of holding a belief and a willingness to indoctrinate children with it.

The whole profession could become gradually more stupid and religious.
