    Teacher of the year is laid off.

    Sacramento ‘Teacher of the Year’ laid off

    Sixth-grade teacher Michelle Apperson passed down a simple message to her students.

    "My favorite teachers growing up were the ones who challenged me to go out of my comfort level a little bit, strive for the stars, and work hard," the veteran California educator wrote on her school's bio page.
    But her own hard work wasn't enough to keep her employed.
    Despite just being named Sacramento's "Teacher of the Year," Apperson was laid off as part of a massive budget cut.
    Work hard, excel at what you do, contribute to society, and get laid off anyway.

    Ain't it great?

    We have greater priorities than education, we have optional wars for hegemony to conduct and the wealthy need bigger tax cuts. And educating people tends to make them less conducive to fighting wars for hegemony and giving bigger tax cuts to the wealthy, so all is as it should be. No need to rock the boat!

    Couldn't possibly have anything to do with this:

    If only states could print money, everything would be okay. But go ahead, tug on those heartstrings

    Surely there was another teacher that didn't preform as well as her that could have been laid off instead.

    Do you know the biggest reason for state budgets being so lean? The recession caused by deregulation. So yeah, it is very sad that we put Wall Street investors before the education needs in this country.

    Can't do that.

    Because if you have good teachers, then kids might learn something... and eventually they might go

    "Holy **** this two party system is idiotic, lets change it"

    And well... alot of people would lose alot of power and alot of money.

    Right.. because California under Jerry Brown and a Democratic majority put "Wall Street investors" before education . I guess you don't know what Prop 98 is

    Tell it to her boss. It wasn't Republican's decision to lay her off.
