Unfortunately, until voters start turning down budgets the first time, those in public office will think we don't care how much more in taxes we pay for an educators pay and benefit package. If people really took a lot at the budgets, they will realize that the biggest share of most education budgets are made up of salaries and benefits. All this while the rest of the other taxpayers are getting their own cut. Educators need to start making the same sacrifices.
