    Oh, really?

    You don't know what you're talking about. FYI, holding a terminal degree can often make you "overqualified" and therefore less likely to find a job.

    Why? I think pay should be a mixture of demand and what is deserved.

Isay; if you can't suport teachers then you are not for education. Teachers have no reson to lie about anything, up to and including the reason they decide to do something like strike.
    I support teachers to the fullest. I hate teachers unions though, and despise them to the fullest, just as I do any public sector union.

    Oh brother. Cleaning up the holes that they have will go a lot toward getting a better machine. The city has it let it go long enough.

    Is this your way of saying that you can't tell me how I'm wrong?
    You have no idea what you're talking about.
