Rock's party has gutted public education in PA. Now he wants to pile on and take away teacher rights. What a disgrace to this state the Republicans are.

Fiscal restraint is a good thing. Foolishly throwing money at education as prior elected officials did is a disgrace. Making sure our dollars are wisely spent is the way to go Abe!

And all the Democrats have done is throw good money after bad in the belief that large sums of cash will alone improve education. It takes leadership and a
willingness for all parties concerned to improve the outcome. Also, I don't believe for one moment that public employees should be unionized ! If they want to be part of a bargaining unit, then let them go into the private sector and see how they fare there.

Ok - but why single out the teachers?- as if they are only public employees in the whole world with a union!

How about the PA State Police?

Once again, Rock is pretending to have been a teacher. He was an INSTRUCTOR, nothing more. The difference between a teacher and an instructor is a minimum of a four year college degree and the meeting of those certification requirements, something which Rock cannot claim.

Mitt Romney: Teachers Have The Right To Go On Strike

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/09/mit...

Speaking at an education summit sponsored by NBC News, Romney said that he wouldn’t stand in the way of teachers engaging in an organized work stoppage, as they recently did in Chicago.

“I don’t know that I would prevent teachers from being able to strike,” Romney said.“Allowing them to strike on matters such as compensation is a right that exists in this country,” he said in response to a question from host Brian Williams.

Rock; introduce a bill that would limit terms, reduced pay and benefits for state legislators.

Hey Todd stick to fighting for the right of pizza delivery drivers to put lights on top of their cars.
