I was teaching high school at the time but I don't remember being afraid that I was eligible. Can you cite a source for your assertion? You could be right, but my memory is that teachers were still deferred even then.
No cite, I'm afraid, but I do remember having two teachers at my schools being drafted, the first in late '69 or early '70, the second the next year. The first left during the school year, the second was able to wait until the school year was over. I have no idea what ever became of either of them. And, for what it's worth, I went to a suburban school.
