Keep the teachers.
As for the “educators”... let ‘em freeze to death in the dark.
This means less revenue coming in to the coffers of the NEA!!!!
Fire half the school administrators.
LOL! Why is it that the bathrooms are always the first to go?
Won’t school end in the next few months? Just sayin’...
Welcome to the real world...
Cut the damn government pensions....
Oh well, we ca’t afford them all and their lavish benefits. Let those unionized teachers feel some of the pain the rest of us are feeling.
Oh? But the country's education secretary will be allowed to keep his I presume?
How about that guy who is in charge of teaching teachers how to teach children to engage in perverse sexual practices like "fisting"?
I suppose he'll keep his yob, right?
It’s about time!
Hmmmm . . . every cloud has a silver lining after all . . .
Most state govts and school districts used the porkulus to save jobs this past Fall. They were warned that Porkulus was a one time deal and not use it for payroll, but that’s what they and Obama wanted. Now a bigger butcher’s bill is coming due. Tax revenues have fallen and the folks are not in a mood to raise taxes. Duncan is quite correct and, save borrowing a lot more $$$ from the Chinese Reds, a very hard rain is gonna fall on a lot of educators.
It’s about time!
Close the entire government school system and the real teachers will find work educating. Then the administrators, union thugs, professors in schools of education can become greeters at Walmart.
My wife just put in her notice not to renew her contract at this particular district. The bureaucracy and child like games of the administrators make it not worth it.

They are the ones who collectively decided to protect thir incompetents. The axe now falls indiscriminately.
Sauce for the goose...
Joy of six (figures): 738 NYC teachers getting $100G+ pensions
From a recently retired TEACHER (starting tomorrow), your statement is spot on!!!
