I'd say that unless her critics want to pay her not to work, they have to accept that she has a right to earn a living and to do business with whoever would do business with her.
They don't have to embrace the idea that she's been hired to shape the minds of our next generation. She can make a living selling insurance or real estate and very few people will care. I'm confident you can see a difference here if you try.
