Getting sick and tired of right wing jerks attacking teachers.

Radical public school teachers? What, because they protested education spending cuts? This is stupid. I fail to imagine any context in which complaining about cuts to one’s work budget can honestly be considered a “radical” act. By definition, defending the status quo is not radical.

Its like wingnuts are required to never read a dictionary, ever.

They “read” exactly one book.

I pity the poor woman listed as the person to contact about “non-radical” teachers. They put her email addy at the bottom, so her school mailbox is probably chockablock with wingnut diatribes now.

This guy(these guys) has been on this from day one. Well worth the read.

Radical = Not wingnuts.

By these people’s definition, I’m a Marxist Radical. *rolls eyes*

Makes me sick to live here.

What the article neglects to point out is that cutting teacher’s salaries was the only real alternative to major layoffs. And a good bit of the lost income is really just overtime rules that were made sane and less favorable to the union (I have heard often, and seen myself, the kind of nutty overtime rules some unions push). So it does not effect my thinking one bit.

McCarthyesque harassment and intimidation campaigns don’t “effect your thinking one bit”? Good to know.

No, the articles descriptions of the effect of Walker’s reforms doesn’t change my way of thinking. That was what I was commenting on

Teachers’ unions are bad, so tactics to abuse and intimidate them are perfectly fine!

What nutty overtime rules have you heard of often AND seen yourself?

I also take exception to the comment that the ONLY place to find money happens to be from unionized teachers salaries. Especially since union busting was one of his primary goals.

I’ve heard this refrain about the International Baccalaureate program, which many school districts have joined to add more challenging courses to their curricula. Are there many IB schools in Wisconsin? Or are the wingnuts doing their usual guilt-by-association shtick?
