You got it!
Break up the big school districts and get rid of most of the administrators.
I didn't read your post before I posted mine. Oh well, we agree about getting rid of administrators.
Bump for later
Break up the current control of unions by law if we must and reduce administrators down to maybe 1 for every 40 teachers.
Also take away the power of the union to make it cost us 100k to fire a bad teacher.
The union only has the goal of growing, so they have been big for illegals in the schools because that means more teachers would be needed to educate them.
I think we need a change in the Constitution of the United States so that illegals are not due any free education, benefits of any kind nor should any get a birth certificate for their children born here unless they prove they were here legally at the time.
It's not just the teacher's union. All of the school workers are unionized.
Our school parents wanted to paint our janitor's office last year as a gift for him, but there were union rules against that.
Our parents wanted to volunteer in the library when the district cut the librarians, but the union rules wouldn't allow that.
It's a joke.
Forgot to agree with you on the illegals. I have little patience with the whole illegal situation, and it is one area that I do not agree with our president on.
That's what the kids say... "Dadgummit, let's go over to the Nursing Home and watch Dad gummit!!!" (That's what they say when they're not thinking about gittin the ranch)
Please add me to the list.
Oh! By the way... Was that gardner documented??? (You don't need to answer that unless you want to.) (Grin)
They do it under the auspices of the PTA, which is nothing more than a front for the union position. I attended one PTA meeting when my daughter was in high school and found they were all in lock step with the teacher's union. Never attended another meeting....
And just as you're entitled to think that, I'm entitled to think that is an entire pantload!!!
"Was that gardner documented???"
He was Japanese, a good gardener!
Don't inspire him. He continually posts that Tom promised (car thief) Darrell Issa that he would drop out of the race. Of course, that was found to be a fantasy, supported only by Issa.
Tom betrayed no one. The CA GOP betrayed California by supporting a Trojan Horse.
Well you're entitled to think that, but I think that it is really a TRUCK LOAD!
Like he betrayed us by not getting elected?????
Please note: I don't refer to them as "Japanese-Americans!"
Issa betrayed us just recently when he cowed under to Bush and backed out of the $100k he promised to the SaveOurState petition drive!
I hope someone good runs against him in the next election, I sure won't vote for him again.
