I don't blame some teachers for leaving depending on the school district & their regulations.
Too many lawyers, laws, public school boards & parents are watering down discipline, dress codes, & some times even curriculum.

The main problem with parents is they don't get involved enough. A friend of mine is a school teacher, and he told me that when they break up fights in the hallway, if a student hits him, he's not allowed to hit him back. All he can do is block the punches. He's not even allowed to wrestle the kid to the ground.

Now we had fights in the hallway in my day, but if you struck a teacher, you are going to feel it for a long time. When the teacher yelled "BREAK IT UP" you threw your last punch for the day.

At a time when a lot of americans are taking pay cuts, or cuts in working hours in an hourly wage job, they should be happy to still be able to pay bills. I do think they should make top salary a lot faster than they do ( if they are worth it) because you need that money more when you're paying for college loans.

I tell young people this all the time: The day that child is born, start a college fund at the bank for him or her. If for some reason they don't want to go to college, then they can use that money for a down payment on a house or something.

Teachers & counselors 7 most principals appreciated my involvement with my sons & the fact that I was a single custodial parent/dad.
I got understanding, cooperation & good information in return. It does work.
1 son is a fine mechanic, 1 has been in the Navy for nearly 10 yrs now & 1 is going to college working towards a Phd.
It wasn't easy being out numbered by 3 rambunctious boys, there was no one to to teach me or classes to go to. I was a work in progress myself...still am really.

Get rid of the unions and that will straighten out most of the problems with our public servants. The thing is teaching is one of the greatest jobs to have and that's why there are way more teachers than there are jobs. Everybody wants to be a teacher.
In a non-union atmosphere, the teachers would cry for more money and benefits and the school would tell them that if you don't like it, leave. That's what goes on in the public sector every day. You don't like it here, then we'll find somebody that will be more than happy to take your place.
While people are losing jobs and the family income is shrinking, these teachers want only more. Unions have no place in the public sector.
Strange how a working man like yourself can be so gung-ho about taking away unions and worker's rights, yet not a peep about CEOs running companies into the ground while giving themselves fat bonuses. Just like with your disbelief in global warming, your keepers have trained you well. Now jump through the hoop for the millionaires, little tea bagger.

Hey neat. Just read an article where over a million people a year die from air pollution in China. It's because they are not really regulated. You know, like what Bush did. Wonder if lung related illness is on the rise here in the US?

Yes, I know, liberals are on this constant strive to make us all immortal. Nobody should die of anything, and if they do, then government must do something about it.

I'm surprised you don't like GW. After all, under him, they lowered sulfur in diesel fuel which made it much more expensive. So now when your household goods and food cost a little more, thank GW. Next time you go to the grocery store, see if you can buy a 100 watt incandescent light bulb. You can't? And why not? That's right, it was under GW that those bulbs were made illegal to sell today, and in the coming years, all wattage of incandescent bulbs will no longer be for sale in this country.

There is nothing strange about my stance on unions. I can't tell you how many customers we lost because of them. Unions would hold their ground for pay increases or benefits, and the companies had no choice but to move down south or out of the country entirely just to get away from them. The less manufacturing in this area, the less work for me. The more of our customers that close shop, the less work for me. Why would I have any good opinion about unions?

Of course, that's not the only reason I hate unions. After all, I pay property tax and a lot of it. Over half of the money I pay in property taxes goes to the schools. Several years ago, they built all new schools because Strickland made us an offer our city Democrats couldn't refuse: we come up with half of the money for all new schools and the state will put us in more debt by matching our half.

We built the new schools and my property tax had the largest increase since I've lived here. One of the reasons it was so expensive is because the unions sued our city because they wanted to hire the lowest bidders to build our schools. According to state law, if we use state money, we have to use union companies and labor or pay prevailing wage. That cost us a bundle, and I'm paying for it.

"...the companies had no choice but to move down south..."

Wonder how much the owner of that company was making when he "had no choice"? The bottom line is when one looks at the pay increase over the last 20 years of the common working man, compared to what the CEOs give themselves, it is abundantly clear that their greed is the reason these companies do anything. We have flatlined while buddies of yours like GW opened the gates on the middleclass in favor of corporations. Also, GW was the one who deregulated the energy industry causing massive damage to the gulf coast due to BPs lax regulations.

You seem like a trained seal to me, barking back whatever bossman tells you to. Thinking what they have taught you to think. Believing the crap they slapped onto the side of a conservative Christian message which you folks gulped down hook, line and sinker. You keep believing that you are on the side of the poor little corporate CEOs. You keep singing the woes of their lavish lifestyles while chumps like yourself smile when tossed a plate of sh!t and preach to hard working taxpayers like myself that we should feel lucky to have it.

CEO's are paid just like your entertainment friends. This is because they do a job very few of us can do. Also, CEO's (like actors and actresses) are paid on contract. Their contract pay is based on past performances. They have a reputation for turning companies around from great losses or producing more profit of successful companies. And if you don't want to pay them the millions they ask for, no problem, your competition will, and then that very same CEO will put your business under.

But like quarter backs who can't throw for a year or so, a star pitcher that has a terrible ERA the next year, or even the famous actor that acted in a flop movie, these people still get the money they were contracted for. CEO's no different.

You can't blame CEO's for the money you make either. It's the American consumer that's responsible. We won't support a floor sweeper making $22.00 per hour. We will sooner buy our products from Chinese or Indian companies. Every company would like to pay their employees more, but when they pay them more, they have to charge more for their product. When unions force them to pay employes more than their worth, the company faces more competition from overseas companies, and then has to relocate to stay alive. It's either that or join their former employees in the unemployment line.

You liberals don't understand business. You don't want to. Liberals only think of themselves and nobody else. They can never put the shoe on the other foot.

Yes, yes, repeat what the bossman told you. What about companies that worked for years until some "superstar" CEO bought it out and ran it into the ground? Oh, and I'm sure the companies moved their jobs to China because they didn't want to pay a floor sweeper $22 and hour...yah, right. I'm sure it's not because they don't want to be regulated or pay a decent wage. That couldn't possibly be it...right? What color is the sky on your planet? Ours is blue.

You are a fool. A blind, meek little company fetch boy. Get your nose out of bossman's @ss once and awhile and perhaps you'd see what a sniveling tool you are.
