    In NY they cant fire a teacher until 2014 no matter what they do.

    Teacher-evaluation law gives even the worst employees a clean slate - NYPOST.com

    Tell you what? Why don't more CONSERVATIVES get into the teaching profession?
    It seems you have a problem with education because it is dominated by LIBERALS. Why is there no preponderance of conservatives in education instead of a preponderance of LIBERALS?
    Perhaps it's the long hours, low pay and dismal social status that drives conservatives away from the teaching profession?
    Perhaps it that, like cops and firefighters, some people are instinctively drawn to work that benefits their communitites more than it enriches them personally.

    Ask yourself why there aren't more conservatives in the education game, before you eschew the people who show up and do the fricking job day in and day out while little jerks like you whine about them getting some JOB PROTECTION. And why do they need job protection? Oh, from people like you who constantly attack the profession.

    Don't like the Liberal bias in education? Sign up to be a teacher.
    Don't whine about it. That makes as much sense for a LIBERAL to whine about the conservative bias in the insurance industry.

    Did you know in most Pro union states you are pretty much forced to join the union. I mean you dont have to participate but you still have to pay the dues.. Which I think its criminal.

    IF my children were just starting out in school I would put them in private school or home school. NO WAY I would put them in public schools these days. The schools have gone down hill in the past 20 years

    Why dont Conservatives take those jobs you ask? It's simple really,we dont need a union to protect our jobs. We do it the old fashioned way....we work hard and become an asset to the company we work for instead of a millstone.
    Leave it to a lib to take the easy way out.

    So why are there so many more liberals in the teaching profession than Conservatives?
    Why is the same true in the press?

    I think the answer is probably found in the question why there are no funny republicans.
    Liberals have John Stewart, Robin Williams and Patton Oswalt.

    Conservatives have Kelsey Grammer and Dennis Miller.

    Sooo......it's your contention that there are NO Conservative teachers in the teacher Unions? :confused:

    Are you willing to stand by that or do you want to change your statement?

    To fix failing schools we need a law that allows us to kick kids that are not learning out of schools. Some are just taking up time until they can drop out and join gangs which is a more lucrative jobs than going to college and there are no jobs.
    Nothing have change about teachers. Children don't even need them to learn. All they need is a computer and a library.

    UFT is a domestic terrorist organization, more dangerous than the KKK and does more damage to our children than NAMBLA
