Will the US Revolution Begin in Wisconsin?

Teachers cancel school, state capitol building mobbed, media silent ... the people's uprising jumps from Cairo to Madison.

parents have a MUCH more important role than teachers ever will. The difference between most poorly performing schools and most highly performing schools are NOT teachers. Hell I would even venture to bet that poorly performing schools may in general have better teachers just because they have to really want to try to work in certain districts.

Sure

As a parent my role is much more important to my child then that of the teacher.

There are bad teachers in "good schools" and there are good teachers in "bad schools"

I so agree with you. And i wouldn't have a problem with paying the inner city teachers a higher salary and the high-income suburban school teachers a much lower salary-Somehow, in my area, teachers make over 100,000/yr and have a yearly pension of the same. they haven't earned it because they are teaching children of the highly intelligent (scientists,psychiatrists,engineers, etc). They ride on the coat-tails of the kids. Meanwhile, inner city Chicago teachers live at nearly poverty levels-how is that just?

1) Most Wi school teachers make over 80,000/yr. and allow taxpayers to pay for their health care and pension. There was a day, long ago, when teachers were underpaid, overworked and undervalued. Not today. 2) the majority of private workers pay into their retirement from earned moneys (401Ks)-but not the public workers.Times are hard and the private sector is sacrificing. Why not the public sector? 3) The gov. has exempted fire fighters and police-those who keep us safe. Let's not over dramatize what's really being proposed, here. It's reasonable, especially when the state is flat borke.4) What about those teachers who do not want to be a part of the union and don't want to pay into it? they are punished and ostracized. Collective bargaining had its place in history. Now it is nothing more than a way to bully taxpayers. What about the voice of the people who are paying these workers-don't they have a say in anything? ever?
