    Her salary is harmful to her health, she obviously spends too high a percentage of her income on munchies.

    We need to help her save herself by firing her.

    It isn't simply the Dems who've prompted/allowed this situation. The lecturers should not the obstacle generally both. The largest drawback is how money are misused. University boards and each the Democrats and Republicans are the situation. There's a good danger that if colleges have been grew to become over to private events and taken out of presidency control they would be much better. Seem in any respect applications run by using the government and tell me which one runs efficiently (none that i know of). We must discontinue teaching persons who should now not be right here to start with. Earlier than a student can attend ordinary courses they should have got to be informed in English, although our faculties taught them 8 hours a day in a category separated from the leisure of the pupils it could be an development. My 2 oldest sons spoke Spanish once they came to the USA but inside 1 12 months they had been ready to speak close to ideal English. The voucher legal guidelines which were attempted have been mounted to aid the low earnings households but where I reside the low revenue areas acquire extra funding for institution than the higher classification who pay extra of the taxes. Our schools want most important work to fix the issues.

    AND yet....The children in Chi Town suffer because their education is less than adequate.

    Throw more money at it or just get better educators?

    I would not stop if I lived in Chicago to oust the existing debacle called a teachers union for something that would always put my children FIRST!

    I'm not a fna of his, but Mike-Huckabee put it sraight last night when he said america has much respect for teachers. what they don't have respect for is their refusal to accept ONLY a 16% pay increase which outs them in a 60k-80k annual earning bracket.

    Most ppl in america are getting paid less and less each year. yet when the teachers get a pay-INCREASE; they feel entitled to more. how does that work?

    Source(s): I'd say YES 60k+ is fine for a yearly income. unless you live in some expensive house which you shouldn't have bought in the 1rst place. or unless you have 4+ children. which in BOTH cases would be the individuals fault.

    She needs to pay her fair share. We need to tax her 90%. She can keep $20K.
