Another biased headline for all to see. When will the media stop trying to manipulate public opinion and policy?

The following quote from the article is equally applicable, with slight variation of course, to the private sector: "There's that great concern and fear, that if we don't pay these exorbitant salaries, somewhere it's going to affect [corporate competiveness and profitability]. I don't believe that's necessarily true."

An article about nothing. Cuts are coming.

Get away from it's all about me and your favorite hand out, and go towards the over all big picture.

Get back to the core function of education, reading, writing and math. Dump the rest.

Sounds like people that have bought into the Teachers Union propaganda. Throwing more money at the schools isn't the solution to the problem as long as there are kids that don't care and parents that don't parent.

It really sounds like they have new classes being taught in Wi. "Whining 101", "Crying over no more stimilus", snd the alsways popular "Oh poor me"
I hear these are being introduced at all the teacher seminars and encouraged to be taken during the summer months when the teachers are off at home not teaching anyone.

It is amazing there are people who criticize Gov. Walker for having to fix a problem created by others over a period of years. It is possible the people quoted in this article are shills coached to help the reporter create something to publish.

Lowering all taxes is considered to be one of the root CAUSES of the mess in California - so now Wisconsin will get to experience that same kind of failure.

Why is it that NO money for things that benifit all gets cug but WELFARE TO BIG BUSINESS is important to the ecconomy - so they can create jobs (in india or china). What result have YOU seen from incentives to Walkers buddies?

If you do not have the intellectual capacity to see the "what happens next" by cutting money to schools and dumping grandma in the nursing home out on the street - I guess you are proof that YOU did not learn in YOUR education.

Let's see dmc - we have dumped tons of $$ into schools and teacher salaries and benefits and we are still not getting results. Grandma is being well taken care of on my watch - 93 this year and she is driving everyone nuts as usual. Time for a complete makeover of our educational process and also the public workers entitlement programs. I see you went through and axed everyones comments. I am mean because I voice my opinion? You are a typical person who cannot appreciate others opinions.

Stop the whining and complaining. Let's concentrate on trying to get the test scores up and actually get the kids learning again. The excellent teachers will rise above the rest who were only in it for the security and benefits anyway. Get our schools back to being learning environments that nurture and educate our future generation. Then go back to the table with something to show that you are worth more than you are getting.

After the AWOL DFL Wisconsin Senators debacle, I bet you could find a lot of Wisconsin voters who wished they had voted for Gov. Walker.

The headline and conclusion aren't based on any legitimate polls are they.

Liberal media bias.
Move along.

It should be of no surprise to anyone that a newspaper based in a traditionally liberal state would print little if anything that didn't have a liberal spin to it. How do we know that anyone interviewed for this article actually voted for Governor Walker? We don't! It's just their word. In this current political climate, I don't trust the word of anyone who claims they voted Republican....it's an easy thing to say when you know you won't get caught if you do lie.

Teachers as well as all public service employees need to join the rest of us in cutting back. We spend more money on public education than any other nation and yet we rank 25th. Why is that?

I support Governor Walker and the proposed budget cuts, 100%.

I am glad I DID vote for Gov. Walker. It is time that we all take a cut, regardless of who you are or what you do.

All I ever hear is who's fault it is with everyone pointing the finger at the other side. Let's face it we all need to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and get to work at solving this issue instead of whining me me me me all the time.

The sooner that we ALL accept that times are not what they were, the sooner we can get back on track.
