once again another political figure ignores the pleas of the people and sells out.

wisconsin got all the attention but they werent the only state to ignore the cries of its citizens about so-called education reform. Here in Idaho the state superintendent Tom Luna decided conveniently AFTER the most recent election to drop a bomb on the citizens of Idaho...

his bill which just passed dramatically INCREASES class size, eliminates tenure for the teachers, restrict unions from negotiating contracts, and forces students to take some online classes. He claimed these radical changes were necessary to save money and fix the broken system

of course the people here were outraged. this wasnt saving any money. it was simply redistribution of wealth as it slashed teacher positions and gives that money to the corporation selling the laptop and online courses (a for-profit education corporation)

Superintendent Luna also happened to receive a large "campaign" contribution from this out-of-state corporation.

Everyone knows he is a total crook. Yet the local media mocks us for protesting. the students even got involved staging a massive walkout one day during school.

the system is broken. money from corporations has corrupted every politician around. Its a really helpless feeling to put so much effort into protesting, writing letters, etc only to see the will of the people ignored repeatedly by these criminals

Strong words for legally elected and/or appointed officials performing the jobs they were elected - by your fellow citizens - to do just because YOU don't agree.

If you don't like what they are doing, engage in the democratic process and vote them out next time there is an election.

Instead, what you seem to be advocating is mob rule.
