evaporate so that those in power have control.

I remember studying working conditions before unions were organized. I hope we don't fall back to those times.

I am horrified by these bills and by a few politicians who are just doing dog whistles..a few children were molested because teachers didn't hold class today. Really, then why do we allow winter, spring and summer breaks?

Oh yes, we've seen it. On the bright side, it shows we're scaring them . This will certainly help our teacher shortage problem for sure!

The really funny thing is that one of the sponsors, I believe it was Bob Gardner, posted a response to all of the criticism yesterday. He was doing some MAJOR back peddling, so he's clearly gotten a lot of flack! He said he only wanted to prevent strikes by "the union." He has nothing against teachers, thinks teachers are amazing, teachers deserve more pay, would never say a bad word about teachers...just "the union." Now who exactly does he think is in the union? Teachers ARE the union.

The other annoying thing is that the actions last week and the ones planned for later this week have been publicized as "walk outs" or "strikes." No one is just walking off the job, and no one is striking. Teachers are using personal days to go lobby at the capitol. Those that don't have personal days are taking an unpaid day, and those that either can't afford to do that or aren't willing to do that have to report to their school for a work day, even if their district is closed.
