I have one question to ask you? Have you ever taught, and how many years? Until you have been there done that you really cannot make that kind of judgement. My father was a teacher for 32 years, he believe that teachers had to be a cut above the rest of the public. Yes he was a member of a union, and a conservative as I am. Both my sister and I are public school teachers. I have tech. degree, she graduated with honors from college. Our school district get about $6000 per student, well below what the school district in large cities get. By the way I live in Stockton, CA.
