Oh but if you will remember, it was the weeper of the house, John Boehner and the republikans , who opposed relief to the hurricane victims. But I do agree that we have no business sending Syria money for anything.

But a hearing officer who decides whether tenured teachers can be fired dismissed the case, ruling that Eller wasn’t told his rights. The Department of Education, considering him unfit for teaching, put him in a holding room for a decade.
A classical guitarist who performs in local concerts, Eller has seen his salary rise to $85,000 due to automatic longevity increases under the teachers’ contract.

Since his 1999 suspension, he has collected $943,000, plus health and pension benefits — and the total will hit $1 million this year.

Girls started complaining about Eller’s unwelcome comments and touching soon after he was hired full time in 1998, following two years as a substitute.

Schools Investigator Ed Stancik alleged many instances of loony and lecherous behavior, among them:

* Eller turned off the classroom lights during a movie, danced with open arms and touched a girl’s shoulder.“I screamed,” she told probers.

* He told another girl she had “a beautiful face and body” and said the way she dressed “disturbs him — he had a hard time teaching.” One day, he pulled her into an empty room and blurted,“I love you.”

* He asked one to lift her shirt to show her butt.“God bless, you have a nice ass,” he gushed.

* He admitted a “crush” on a girl, telling her she was “well developed” and “would make a good wife.” He hugged her “very tightly” and confided that “he wouldn’t just fall in love with any girl ... and that age doesn’t matter.”

The Board of Education failed to investigate the complaints in 1998, sending Eller for a medical exam and then back to class. Meanwhile, he gained tenure — and job protections.

OK, genius. Lets see if we can figure this out. As older teachers with tenure retire, filling their jobs with non tenured , inexperienced teachers at the bottom of the pay scale saves on payroll. Add in approximately 10% yearly turnover and it isnt long before you have all non tenured teachers if you dismiss all those without tenure before they qualify..
You really are republikan arent you.

OK genius, let's figure out why you can't read and/or comprehend. Who said anything about teachers retiring? We were talking during budget cuts or teachers that should've been fired years ago. During these times, the school board keeps those who are incompetent but have tenure and lets those go who show promising abilities but have no tenure. We NEVER talked about those who choose to leave on their own....keep up, it's not hard.

No, he gave the relief bill a go, just cut the pork. Where have you been, this was covered way back there besides, it's nice to see a politician with a heart. He's not looking for a 40 million dollar home in the 50th state.

He opposed the relief bill because of all of the pork that was attached (by both parties) that had nothing to do with the relief. If you're going to tell the story don't cherry pick to suit you're agenda, at least tell the whole story.

Were relief package for other areas hit by disaster in the past packed with pork? What makes this one so unique for Republicans?

I have no poroblem with vouchers. Vouchers help ignroant republikans send their under performing reprobate children to private political schools where teachers, having no tenure, can be fired for not inflating little Johnny's grades to please his cash paying mammy. This allows public schools to teach in an improved atmosphere without the disruptive brats and their ignorant parents demanding special treatment .
Some very few children benefit from home schooling. For most, sadly, it is an exercise in the blind leading the blind.
<quoted text>
Even for you TSF, what a pissy post. Maybe you have a family member that's a school teacher and you feel the need to defend the public school system. However, when little Johnny completes his high school diploma from a political school that inflates Johnny's grades to please his cash paying mammy, he still must take college entrance exams. I feel certain that if you paid to send your child to a private school and the students upon graduation scored poorly on the college entrance exams or could only qualify for a community college, how long do you think the mean old private school would stay in business? Stop the piss pot attitude. On one post, it's the Republicans' fault; on another, "daddy's not home"; on another the asians are outscoring us because of "attitude, attitude, attitude". Find ONE, I don't care which and stick to it!! Goodness gracious.
You don't have to endorse home schooling and people that home school their children have the same right not to endorse home schooling. You're starting to sound like Mike.

The country wasn't $16T in debt then, although the pork spending then did help in a small way to get us there. Can someone not take a stand against frivolous spending or is it just because a Republican took the stand?
Just the other day (D) Sen Mary Landrieu, La, said on capital hill that we, the govt, didn't have a spending problem! WTF!?!
