My Way News - Calif. teachers see red over mass pink slips
Having read this article, taking note that the possibility exists that there may be fewer forced redundancies than are being suggested, I thought, nay, wondered what the total manpower numerically of those in Government in California.
My reasoning is that every Government politician (funded by the Californian Taxpayer) is perfectly willing to take Taxpayer money while failing to govern California in a sensible manner.
I doubt one would see any Politician willingly cede a percentage of his / her salary back to the state for the good of the state?
There again, perhaps I may be wrong?
In Texas I heard that an ISD where teachers would need to be laid off, held a poll among all their teachers and decided that they would give up pay for one hour each week, this allowed that ISD to put off making six teachers redundant.
Definitely a win win situation not only for the six teachers but also and perhaps more importantly for the student body within that ISD.
