No Guts, No Glory

Seems school boards across the state have no guts to do what is right and live with in their budgets.

From JSOnline.
"Wisconsin's schools chief ramped up lobbying efforts Tuesday for a $23 billion education jobs bill pending in Washington that could stave off teacher layoffs next year.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers said that if the bill passes Congress, it could bring more than $400 million to Wisconsin in extra stimulus funding, enough to save thousands of full-time teaching positions across the state next school year.

"We're in a desperate situation here," Evers said. "It's a one-year fix, but it's a fix worth pursuing.""

Seems also Evers has no spine and has to try to protest his pals (teachers) by asking for more federal money. Let me rephrase that, Evers is only doing what WEAC is telling him. Go to Washington and save our (raises and pension) sorry butts! Goes to show how important even the state superintendent elections are in Wisconsin.

Just remember they will say "it's for the children." Give us money or we take away sports, take away band, take away buses to get the children to school.

Will voters roll over and get a big fat property tax increase or tell districts to live with in their means. When will you see riots in the streets and picket lines from the very same people that tell parents we care for their children and only teach them because they care for their education. The same people with Obama stickers on their cars.

Side note, will all candidates running for the congressional 8th district  including Kagen weigh in on what should be done or would they vote for a teacher bail out? What say you?
