This is the best news I’ve heard all day. With all the nonsense going on in Washington these days sometimes you need a little good news and here it is.
From Business Insider:
A school superintendent in Rhode Island is trying to fix an abysmally bad school system.
Her plan calls for teachers at a local high school to work 25 minutes longer per day, each lunch with students once in a while, and help with tutoring. The teachers’ union has refused to accept these apparently onerous demands.
The teachers at the high school make $70,000-$78,000, as compared to a median income in the town of $22,000. This exemplifies a nationwide trend in which public sector workers make far more than their private-sector counterparts (with better benefits).
The school superintendent has responded to the union’s stubbornness by firing every teacher and administrator at the school.
I applaud this superintendent. This is exactly what needs to happen with these public sector unions. The administrators need to break their backs. Its clear from the details of this story that these so-called teachers have no interest in actually doing what the taxpayers pay them to do: teach the students. So they were shown the door. Bravo!
I hope this is the beginning of a trend. The American people need to stand by the folks brave enough to take on the unions.
It’s time to go to the mattresses!
