So Providence in an effort to take care of some of their budget woes is looking at dismissing all of their teachers at the end of this school year. As a result the teachers union is up in arms and is trying to win support by using this wonderful statement.
“This is beyond insane,” Providence Teachers Union President Steve Smith said Tuesday night. “Let’s create the most chaos and the highest level of anxiety in a district where teachers are already under unbelievable stress. Now I know how the United States State Department felt on Dec. 7 , 1941.” That was the day the Japanese government bombed Pearl Harbor.
How does the dismissal of the teachers compare to an act of war that resulted in the deaths of 2350 people? How does this even relate? Chaos and anxiety, war is controlled chaos, and why would the State Department be anxious?
To those who still haven’t figured out what the core issue is yet, the output is greater than the input and has created a budget crisis. This deficit has been created by the inflated wages that public employees are paid. These inflated wages have been created by the unions and their control over public services. These wages are also considerably higher than they should considering the extensive resources now available for educating your children. It doesn’t fit the bill that many people want for the educational system, baby sitter, but a good education requires the participation of the parents. Education is full time, not just the hours while they’re at school. Honestly I probably learned more at home than I ever did in school.
So there wont be public schools anymore to indoctrinate your kids into socialist thinking. Instead private enterprise will create schools that far excel the current public standard. Mr. Smith, the real reason you’re upset is because the American public are seeing you for what you are, a leech sucking on the wallet of the American tax payer.
