How are those teachers unions working out?

In the US we spend the 4th largest amount per student, yet the results rank our schools no higher than 17th in comparison to other developed nations. Remember when we actually taught students and held teachers responsible for teaching children?

    That goes for ANY union. Unions are what is know as the great underachievement machine. Once they are in the union, they get lazy, because it's harder to get rid of slackers, and they only have to work by the rules of the union, not by merit anymore.

    PUBLIC unions should be OUTLAWED as they are not in the best interest of the tax payers, parents, children, or the community in general. Teachers unions hold our children HOSTAGE until their demands are met, and if they are not, the teachers walk out, and steal away the childrens educations because of THEIR GREED! If they were good teachers, they would KEEP THEIR JOBS, and children could learn! They are also forced by the UNION to vote DEMOCRAT, which is against the best interest of any other party!

    California teachers rank #2 in terms of highest paid (second only to New York). Yet look at the drop out rates. Of course, it doesn't help that there are millions of children who's parents are here illegally getting a free education on OUR dime. But yeah, teachers unions ought to be abolished. Along with all other public workers unions who have a $150 billion stranglehold on the state of CA.

    They are some of the best paid "workers" in the US workforce. Given the quality of students that generally leave public schools, it's very fair to say that most teachers "phone it in".

    You a$$holes love hating teachers. Pathetic and typical. Stop blaming others for your failure. It's your fault alone that you are an ignorant narrow minded fox news parrot.
