Union Teacher: John Ransom is an Idiot

Mr. Ransom, I have several comments. 1. I really get a kick out of all these unionized teachers who have helped destroy the education in "public education" demanding to know what makes you an expert in education. Apparently they are unaware that public educators in CA were so embarrassed by the way home-schooled kids outperformed public school kids on every test that mattered that the pro-union CA legislature outlawed home-schooling. 2. "The goshdarn Liberal" never reads anything comprehensively. And he's stupid. A few weeks ago he subtracted 45 from 100 and got 65. He's a product of public education. 3. You said it all with this comment: "Public K-12 education is broken in this country and the culprit is public employee unions.

Why do home schooled kids do so well? Because the parents are involved. Because the kids are actually focussed on work, not on screwing around. Because they are focussed on work, not on soclaistizing. Because they are protected from the peer pressure to act like a jerk. Because they have plenty of one on one attention.

Perhaps failure because is not an option, remedial work will continue as needed in place of after school, weekend, and vacation activities. Similar to living on a farm, the work continues as first priority.

I got a lot of comments from the semi-official-always-hilarious Facebook site for the teachers' union regarding my story Teachers’ Union Expelled from School District.

Welcome, to a whole new batch of comrades!

Dear Comrade Kallie,

I’m a parent. That’s makes me a primary consumer of education.

Yes, I know. You think kids are the consumers. But really...
