Why are you protecting the guilty and attacking the innocent?
Teachers have nothing to do with the situation?
The teachers unions practically own the state legislature.
The teachers unions constantly demand more even though the state is getting less tax revenue.
The teachers unions constantly cry about putting the economy before children when people call for reforms or necessary cutbacks yet if the teachers
unions aren't really putting children first, they are putting themselves first.
The teachers unions are made up of teachers or represent the teachers.
The public school teachers in California SUCK. The public education system in California SUCKS. Hell the public education system, especially k-12 in
the U.S. SUCKS. It doesn't take an "ultra right wing-privatize-everything" person to see this.
How is it such that teachers complain so much about their salaries and about classroom size or whatever? They earn waaaaay too much money. How is it
some poor nun in some nearly broke inner city private school can teach better than a public school teacher?
The teachers unions don't care about teaching, they care about job security and they care about sucking the money from the California taxpayer while
at the same time holding on to near extreme amounts of political power.
State workers, especially teachers unions, have gotten drunk with money and power. During the good times they were all fat and happy with the tax
revenues. Now that the economy sucks and tax revenues are drying up, state workers want to make up the losses by taxing more.
It doesn't take an "ultra right winger" to get get pretty miffed about having to pay more taxes to support teachers that suck at teaching and a
government that sucks at governing.
