    HUGE cuts have to be made

    but it's where they are made that is important
    kaukauna in wisconsin points the way (which all must naturally follow, from cuomo's new york to moonbeam's CA)

    teachers' contributions towards health care and pensions are upped significantly

    negotiations for health coverage are opened up beyond the unionist monopoly

    reduction of teacher prep (in my district, due to block scheduling, teachers get ONE HUNDRED MINUTES prep per day)

    lengthening of work week

    etc

    you didn't open the link, it appears

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Again, say something, be bold enough to actually make a comment, to show you can do more than just post links. Hell, even try to show you actually know what I'm saying. If you can, I mean.

    Well, I knew you couldn't.

If the union agreed, it would save over 200 teacher's jobs. What do you think the union's response was? No way! In other words, so much for putting the children first.

    Third, why do you think the MPS system rushed through a contract agreement instead of waiting for Walker's budget repair bill, which would have allowed MPS to save many millions of dollars and avoided all teacher cuts?

    Lastly, other schools in WI are seeing the opposite, since they waited for the budget repair bill to go through prior to agreeeing with the unions. For example, Kauakauna schools went from a 400K deficit to a 1.5 million dollar surplus due to the changes provided in the bill.
    And I will say it again. I hope every teacher that wasn't laid off either leaves the state or goes into another line of work.
