Even if they were created by Administrators and Unions, the "TEACHERS" are the ones who sit in them day after day and do diddly sh*t. So they are just as much the problem as the Administrators and Unions.
And besides, the teachers are represented by the Union. The Union is supposed to speak on their behalf (that's what they are paid for). So if the Unions demand it, then the teachers wanted it.
If they had any kind of class (no pun intended), this would be one thing they would have demand the Union get rid of.
True, but it is likely they are pos's to get put there, so they are happy to get paid to do nothing. There are bad employees in every profession it's just they usually get fired. We have so much venom against all teachers because some are bad. No one ever says I hate all doctors because some are bad.

<quoted text>Learn the difference between can't and won't and also look up 3020-a hearing. The NYC rubber rooms are a problem created by administrators and unions not teachers.
The teachers' willfull blindness enables the union's nefarious misdeeds. They dgaf about the kids or the country.

It isn't the venom that people has is against the teachers, it is against the unions and the ridiculous demands they have which translates to picking the tax payers pockets. I actually don't know anyone that doesn't like someone just because they are a teacher, but I do know people who have a problem with them being in a union. I am one of them.

And agreed, there are bad employees in every profession. But for those in the public sector, they are paid from my tax dollars. If a doctor is bad, they eventually lose a practice. Big difference.

I agree for the most part.
