Time to privatize ALL public schools and outlaw public sector unions.

Very simple...

Any teacher who called out sick without a doctors note....or office receipts for payment....

Don’t pay them....

Do what Reagan did to the air traffic controllers. Fire them. Decertify them.

Went to the capital to protest PENSION CUTS. We the People paid for their ‘sick days’ AND their substitutes AND their pensions, which very few of us have. Isn’t that just dandy. Good for this Gov.

Most “teachers” are just foot soldiers for Socialism. I always cringe when friends/family try to make them out as some kind of saints.

I went to Catholic school when we had real teachers.....life long teachers who loved what they were doing....

honestly I know of only one or two teachers that love their work and never want to quit.....I can't even include my sister in that small group.....

“The Kentucky Department of Education takes the closing of schools very seriously...”

Translation: We don’t get state/Fed money. Butt in seat=money.

With virtually every problem in America being taken “seriously” by some authoritative spokesperson, why do we have problems that never go away?

Sounds like learning may have accelerated on those days, instead of being curtailed. Looking at the reason for the “sick days”, I’d say the only thing “sick” about this is if they get paid for those days. Teacher’s unions need to be abolished as well as any other unions where the members are taxpayer funded.

Absolutely.

So how come so few Freepers seem to be in favor of this?

We whine about the Dems and GOPe and socialism, and then support the system which produces the voters which puts these same idiots in power.

We wouldn’t be in the cultural crisis we’re in now were it not for unrepentant anti-American/anti-Christian leftist brainwashing via Big Ed (public schools and colleges). This filth should’ve been cleaned out over 50 years ago and on a routine basis ever since. Most people in the teaching profession today aren’t fit to babysit rats.

I fear Matt is going to re-elextion because of this. Some RINO has already filed to primary him.

“Criminal conspiracy to commit fraud”

“Unsworn falsification”

“Larceny”

This could get interesting!

The originator of the teachers national protests (and the red shirts they wore) is an avowed “socialist” (i.e. communist) with some weird name.

However he did a great job of organizing them. He’s dangerous.
