    So the entirety of the Wisconsin Public Work Force "is not the government"........in your book anyways.

    As for boycotting union services, I do that everyday. I am not part of a union and have no current intention on doing so. You I expect are doing the same
    Wrong........to boycott Union Thug Services would entail you taking your tax dollars and spending them elsewhere.........

    ........to conduct such a boycott.......would end with THE MOB sending men with guns to your door to help you reconsider.

    And you are wrong

    I am not using union services, as I am not part of a union. I do occasionally use government services

    I fail to see how your study shows that Chicago is a horrible place for equal education funding and racial/economic disparities in education.

    There most certainly is proof that smaller class room size, increased instruction time, and separate classes for special needs kids do improve test scores, and all of those things require increased funding. And yes the large urban populations of NY affect the state average.

    Every school district in Illinois has separate classes for special needs kids. I don't know what you're talking about.
    Perhaps in an unionized state that might be the case. Good on them! In non-union states, inclusion of special needs kids in the regular classroom is the norm.

    Not necessarily increased funding. Reallocation of funds from their budgets would accomplish the very same thing. Spent more money on students. Less on administration. Less on legal fees. Less on nonteaching positions. This is such a slippery eel no one can get their arms around it -- other than to say: We Need More $$$$!!!

    Perhaps in an unionized state that might be the case. Good on them! In non-union states, inclusion of special needs kids in the regular classroom is the norm.
    Really? Do you have a link for that?

    Actually we went out of business. The most we could get for kneecapping was $300.00 bucks and we just could not find the talent to do it right anymore. Back in the old days there were always a few kids willing to prove their chops and do those starting jobs like breaking thumbs, gouging eyes and hassling somebody's kids outside their school just to throw the fear of the union into them. But sadly, the good old days are gone and now their are but a distant memory of a better time. I think Jimmy Hoffa would roll over in his grave in the endzone of that football stadium if he could see our union leaders today eating quiche and sipping on white wine bribing politicians with Mexican time shares.

    Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
