Sure, they are the one's that got the sweetheart deals with liberal legislators in exchange for their vote.The budget bill and the budget repair bill require school districts to make big cuts and essentially directed the districts to compel their teachers to bear the brunt of the cuts.
What is permanent is cutting teachers wages and benefits that were out of control.School districts will have to repeat their cost-slashing exercises next year and every subsequent year until the state’s school funding formula is overhauled. It is quite unlikely that we’ll be able balance our budgets on the backs of our teachers more than once. So this isn’t anything close to a permanent solution to school districts’ annual budgeting challenges.
And what the hell is wrong with that. You think these teachers are some kind of God. I don't think so. You can't fire a bad teacher no matter what, it's not about teaching, it's about a bad teacher doing nothing but getting a tax payer paycheck. Then the second you hire a new teacher they automatically get tenure. Teachers union have destroyed our education systemThere are longer-term issues as well. While the Governor has wanted to send the message around the country that Wisconsin is open for business, the message that he indisputably sent everywhere, around the globe as well as around the country, is that Wisconsin has it in for its teachers.
No, if a fucking teacher does not like what they get paid or the conditions they work, QUIT.If you’re a teacher, or plan to be one, we’re telling you that we’re not going to be very welcoming in this state. We’ll cut your take-home pay, worsen your working conditions and, by gosh, we’ll make you like it.
Now you want to speak of job performance, they don't produce any job performance, you can't fire a fucking teacher, so why in the hell would any teacher perform? They go into immediate retirement the day they get hired.It’s puzzling the extent to which folks seem to think that we can cut teachers’ pay and load them up with new responsibilities and yet not expect that there will be any effect on their job performance. The world doesn’t work that way. Teachers, like everyone, react to incentives.
Listen to yourself, we pour more and more money into our schools, yet we get less and less performance. Who are you kidding. Let the schools fire teachers and pay the good ones and our students will get more educated not less educated as it is now.You get what you pay for. As we cut teachers’ pay, make their working conditions less attractive, and demonstrate in other ways that we don’t value their contributions to the educational enterprise, then, all else equal, teachers with other options will leave our employment. The teachers who stay won’t be as willing to go above and beyond their minimum obligations. We’ll be unable to attract as high a caliber of applicant for teacher vacancies as we have in the past. The quality of the teaching profession in Wisconsin will eventually but inevitably go down. Our students will learn less as a result.
Walker has already addressed it. Where have you been.Long term, we’ll have two options. We can try to address this problem or we can ignore it.
And then you post up those union teachers whining, like who cares. They've been living high on the hog for a long time and now they want to whine.
