If Galt was responding to an ignoramus like Dumbass Dave, as an example, use of "wallah" might be appropriate.

Perhaps Carol was responding in that vein.

On a more serious note, far too many schoolteachers have education degrees instead of degrees in subject matter, because that is what the job market encourages. Third-rate teacher colleges are a pipeline to employment at many school districts, with those having subject degrees from better, out-of-state colleges being at a disadvantage.

Detroit's fiscal condition has become so dire that private citizens are stepping up to provide basic services, and some experts say the volunteers and entrepreneurs are the Motor City's best hope.

Nearly $2.5 billion in debt after decades of mismanagement, the city is now being run by an independent emergency manager in a last-ditch effort to avoid bankruptcy. Just last month that city stopped payment on unsecured debt in an attempt to “conserve cash” for the police and fire departments and other city services. But the city's collision course with insolvency has created business opportunities for some and spurred a sense of civic pride for others.

Tom Nardone is the leader of "The Mower Gang," a growing group of volunteers who cut the grass at city parks. The business consultant and former analyst with Ford Motor Co. mounted his riding lawnmower and went to work when the cash-strapped city was on the brink of shutting down parks because there was no room in the budget for upkeep.

“I was looking for some sort of volunteer work when the city announced that they were closing 72 parks,” Nardone, 48, told FoxNews.com .“I wondered at the time what exactly that meant and found out that when the park is closed, it basically means that they stop with the upkeep. They are basically abandoned.”

Working alone, Nardone started out just mowing under swing sets. But an army of inspired volunteers has joined the Mower Gang, allowing it to take on bigger and bigger projects, including a bicycle track that had been shut down and neglected since the 1980s. The Mower Gang, which has received equipment donations from Husqvarna, now maintains 15 city parks, helping to reclaim recreation space for kids and grownups alike.

“When we get there [to a park], people are happy to see us, especially the kids,” Nardone said.“This isn’t a problem solver, but it’s a solution that helps.”

When Andy Didorosi read in the newspaper that budget cuts had made a casualty out of a long planned light-rail project, the lifelong Motor City resident wasn't sad. He was angry.

“I was pissed. I said,‘I’ll make the corridor,’” Didorosi, 26, told FoxNews.com . "I was an asset liquidator at the time and had recently bought some buses anyway. I’ve always been a gearhead.”

He started the Detroit Bus Company. The initial goal was to provide reliable routes in the city, mainly along the main artery of Woodward Avenue, where the light rail had been proposed. He also thought it made sense to establish a route to and from Detroit airport, something the city had provided, but poorly, according to Didorosi.

“The only option is one bus that doesn’t run very often and stops on every corner,” said Didorosi, who hopes to get city approval for an express airport route next month.“It takes three hours to make a 45 minute commute. The city has missed out on holding conventions and we could possibly lose out on hosting the X Games because a lack of transportation.”

The Detroit Bus Company currently runs charter services as well as scenic tours with six buses -- ranging from school buses to coach liners -- and provides free rides for kids to after-school programs and summer jobs.

“Transportation is a public problem,” Didorosi said.” I don’t necessarily think that the system should be privatized, but I don’t see a better option than providing the services. Hopefully, everything will work itself out and the city will be back on track.”

How do you know what Tonto knows? The "town" is a flat spot in a dry field just now, any road signs to the contrary. But that describes every town in west texas, doesn't it. The "workers" as you so quaintly put it, now no longer are paid anything, though it's reasonable to assume they went at least 100 times as far in life as any of the Bangladeshis ever did. Probably just not in the direction they had assumed.
West, Texas is in the east central part of Texas.

Galt is too f*king stupid too know that teaching is more than subject knowledge. It has to do with proven methods, child psychology, and the ability to identify learning areas & learning difficulties.

Your type of "thinking" is much of the reason that public schools in America are such dismal failures.

Highly qualified people rejected in favor of local hacks.

Tonto is reminded of two whites in rowboat in middle of Pacific Ocean. As far as two whites can see, nothing but unbroken expanse of water until horizon all around. One white lean over to other and say, "I think we're lost." Tonto think Galt white version of Chatty Cathy.
