Maybe Mr. Gallagher has never taught school.....maybe he has. But facts are facts. He is absolutely correct.
So, go ahead and pay your union dues, protest when you don't get a huge raise, do your job every day knowing that you don't have to even try, don't worry that little Johnny can't read..........your job is safe!!!!
One more thing,
Imagine if all doctors were unionized like the teachers..........no fear of malpractice, no fear of being sued, no fear of losing patients to neighboring clinics, no worries at all...........but would you, the patient, worry? I think you would.
