I have no sympathy for these teachers at all. They are among the highest paid teachers in the country whose salary averages over $70K for 9 months work with very good benefits. If you don’t want to teach, get out and let someone else do the job!

Evaluations are not evaluations. It's forcing, and shaping teachers to fit a liberal mentality and be a puppet of the state. Tests and scores is a waste of time and money.


Half our people are on welfare, and two thirds are no higher then a sixth grade level.

Government schools do not work,- no matter how much money you pump in. It's our biggest scam. Good luck to our striking teachers.
