Educators effective citizens?

Educators do work under considerable constraints. But have educators done what effective citizens of democracies do when unreasonably constrained? Have they revolted in ways to model what good citizens of democracies do when confronted with tyranny? Or have they consistently adjusted to the constraints to avoid confrontation with they tyrants so as to not have disturbed the relatively comfortable lives they have been allowed for conforming. Have they not taught students that such is what student should do if they want to get along in school and in life? Do what those in authority tell you to do and teach others to do what you tell them to do as a representative of those in authority?
