Love for teachers takes many forms, including the kind of fast-paced, twisted, and misogynistic kind of love doled out by Van Halen in their song “Hot for Teacher.” I don’t condone they way the band portrays education or women. I loathe the video in a lot of ways. But the song has an immovable place in pop culture. You got it bad?
