Teachers join Occupy L.A. movement with march

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A strong showing is expected in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday, as more people join the sweeping movement sparked by Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Demonstrators with the Occupy L.A. group have been living in tents outside of City Hall for about two weeks protesting against what they call corporate greed.

On Tuesday, the teacher's union will join Occupy L.A. in a march to LAUSD headquarters where the school board will be meeting. They are looking to start a second occupation site to protest teacher layoffs.

The union wants the district to re-hire the 1,200 teachers and other school workers that were laid off earlier this year.

"One of the main points of Occupy L.A. is to protect the public's sphere," said teacher Marcy Winograd. "That we share a public arena and it should be protected from corporate influence."

Winograd says one major issue is corporate charters defunding public education in LAUSD.

Unreal. It's ok to fire private sector people, because they work for a corporation, in favor of re-hiring public employees. There's a revolt coming, and it won't be the one that public employees desire.

If these people do not realize what the fruits of thier labor has the potential to ignite, I fear that they are going to be in for the shock of their lives.

Geeze! What does this racist think should be done with these “Zionist Jews”?....Ship ‘em off to Liberia? ( Just wondering).

So?..Personally, I am **very** concerned and so should all Jews ( Zionist or not). Statements like this woman and others is like watching the canary in the coal mine drop dead.

More and more I am really disliking school teachers.

All too often they are displayed as models of sacrifice, all “for the children”, but many are nothing more than acolytes of Bill Ayers, self-esteem mongers, anticapitalists, socialists, redistributionists, America-haters, and intellectually mummified no-nothings whose main goal is to propagandize and socially-engineer childen to their warped and pinched world views.

I have to teach my kids math at home, as the PRIVATE school they attend sets such low standards for math. “Well, we do meet WA state standards,” the principle says. BS. Lazy and out of touch teachers.

So, now we have Los Angeles teachers joining in with the crowd that wants to burn down the Smithsonian!

They'll need to bring in more antiaircraft batteries soon ~ drop 'em down to use as antipersonnel weapons against these crowds.

I'd pay good money to watch that.

In other words, pay me more than what I’m really worth, provide benefits in excess of my value, and leave me the hell alone to poison the minds of gullible students.

Anything going on in our “skools” (Institutions of Indoctrination) these days? The “students” and “teachers” appear to be too busy pimping communism for anyone to be learning anything. We might want to look at shutting some of them down for a while. They aren’t being used anyway.

Freeze their pension contributions and decertify the union and they can have their jobs back.

What say you unions?

once again....teachers revealing to everyone they don’t understand where money comes from - where “their” money comes from.
Incapable of logic.

I heard a sound bite on the radio from a woman who claimed to be a teacher in Los Angeles complaining about the JEWISH bankers in NY. She should have been fired for that comment.

she absolutely should be fired.
She has alot going for her though...she is female. She is black. She is tenured. Most importantly...she is liberal.

No doubt - her status among her peers has improved greatly.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'll be even more blunt. Teachers in our socialist government schools are traitors to our nation or Useful Idiots! ( Yes, I really mean it.)

Only a traitor or a Useful Idiot would willingly agree to work a job that teaches children to think and reason godlessly. All government schools in this nation are godless. Merely by attending children **must** reason and think godlessly just to cooperate with the classroom, read and understand their textbooks, and do assignments.

Only a traitor to the nation, or a Useful Idiot would teach children to be comfortable with socialism. ALL government schools in this nation are socialist! All of them are socialist-funded. When children attend they learn that the government uses its threat of police threat to take money from a neighbor for their socialist tuition-free schooling. Well?...If government police threat can dole out tuition-free socialist schooling, why not lots of socialist stuff?

Personally, I have totally eliminated all teachers teaching in our socialist schools as friends. They are either too evil or too stupid to be my friend.

There will likely be some stupid teacher or their spouse who will say, “I prayed about it and I am able to sneak in some Christian principles.” Well!....These stupid people are teaching an important lesson. They are teaching the children that Christians are SNEAKY hypocrites will sell their principles for a paycheck and cushy pension.
