When will Teachers Learn?
Who can forget the very blatant attempt by the NJEA to indoctrinate children into believing they are the only ones who know what is good for them. Look at this website. Who is it geared for. Certainly not adults. Stick figures and crayon fonts. This site is set up to make our kids turn on our values and tell us the teachers are right. This sickens me.
Now on to the State of Wisconsin and the protests there. The teachers who so very much care about our children called out sick from their classrooms and some of them as shown in this video below took the students to the Statehouse in Madison to protest the cuts. Listen to the kids. They do not even know why they are there.
Well this move sure beats the snot out of New Jersey teachers weak website. These teachers took kids who had NO IDEA why they were going to a protest. If I was the parent of any of these kids I would immediately file charges against the teacher for kidnapping. If the kids did not know why they were there what are the chances that the parents even knew the kids were not in the classroom. More importantly how many parents support the teachers position?
Here is the rub. The Governor of Wisconsin is trying to avoid layoffs. The rub is he is doing it by eliminating collective bargaining for government employees. So the unions which make millions of our tax dollars by charging dues to the teachers tell the teachers and other state workers that not having a union is a bad thing.
It should be noted that at least one Afsme union representative makes more yearly than the governor. He gets paid over 170 thousand dollars a year in Wisconsin taxpayer money. While trying to protect the rank and file workers the Governor has drawn the ire of the Union big wigs. And since they can tell the rank and file anything they want you see teachers taking children to a protest that they know nothing about. Talk about child endangerment.
