    Could you please share with us why they are retiring ?

    This raises questions in my mind.

    What changed about teaching ?

    Or was it something in the benefits package that changed that caused them to make this choice.

    Is that supposed to be a bad thing? Wisconsin teachers who participated in the criminal demonstration should have been fired anyway. My guess is that the selfish bastards see a grandfather clause in the retirement system and pension benefits trump their alleged social integrity. Adios drones and welcome real teachers.

    Naa, these people aren't teachers, they are opportunists with a degree who couldn't get a job flipping burgers or cutting chum. They lucked out in a cushy job after college and they thought the taxpayers should pay their lavish pensions including holidays and the whole summer off. These pepple are parasites. I doubt if you will ever see them ever working part time without benefits or God forbid as volunteers.
