I believe this doesn't override right to work. But u r in entirely different situation. U make great pay. This law really isnt needed fer Michigan public school teachers. Although i do beleive new high school is needed instead of greedy salaries and retirements in taylortucky..noy just teachers.lorain ohio has found a way to fund new high school.wht can't taylor? Because everyone is so bent on keeping outrageous unreasonable pensions and salaries in place. What a shame! A brand new state of the art high school is the better choice

You are a complete, uneducated fool who clearly has not reaped a single reward from any schooling system.

How do u say i am a complete fool? Do students not deserve updated schools? Taylor has some of the oldest delapidated achools bldgs. Facts r facts . How come other districts have completely modernized or built new buildings? Yet taylor has money for outrageous pensions? Lorain ohio is not wealthy.yet i have seen the artist renderings of new high school. How come taylor is left behind time and time again joseph? Becauaw thwy have other priorities with funding .this is where state should be involved to make sure cities prioritize.

My daughter got them a federal grant -- pays for an paid aid in every classroom, pays for free breakfast, free lunch, free after school food, and free after school day care for anyone -- not need based. Further, provides $ 10,000 for each student to use for college when they graduate, even with a crappy D average -- just graduate -- her reward -- fired after one year, so the teachers could make more money

And who r u joseph? Instead of these goofy taylortucky firefighters etc. Picketing, we need citizens picketing city hall to demand answers on why taylor has not modernized public schools. Keep their outrageous pensions and keep patching up old school facilities. Keep crowded classrooms so state can give taylortucky more Money. Taylor neefs new city council and people who genuinely care about welfare of public school system and not publishing how much they spend per students and saying students r being inundated with things on internet that r harmful. DUH. They need to be telling public how taylor schools r going to be built in future like lorain ohio has. Do most of these people running this city live in taylor? Why not look out for future of students and stop publishing nonsense about how much they spend on students in old outdated buildings and telling them about stuff that is being transmitted to computers. Duh! Everyone gets this stuff on computers! Not just taylortucky students!
