Another classic example of not dealing with the "hard" stuff instead they do the easy stuff like beating up on women & the gay community. What a bunch of heroes.

"Sen. Phillip P. Puckett, D-Russell, a former teacher and elementary school principal, who rose to make a rare floor speech."

This guy does nothing all year round, then leaps up to announce he is appalled when something might threaten the endless tenure and pay-raises of the trade union members.

Disgusting!

Curious as to why teachers feel they have to have job security-none of the rest of us have that.
Sadly there are lemons in this profession - they do need to be weeded out.
