Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools
Every election cycle, and often between election cycles, we hear about how public school teachers are practically dying in the streets and the schools are so poor they can't even afford paper. They must have a massive influx of cash immediately because we are in crisis mode already. Oh the humanity! Of course these teachers (read government apparatchiks) keep saying they don't do it for the money but for the children because they are the selfless servants of society. Such heroism! (Someone pass me a barf bag).
Yet every year, without fail the public schools are voted “First Place: Place To Work” because:
“The district provides a lot more than a paycheck, too. Employees enjoy first-class health plans and wellness programs, plus many other benefits, such as flexible spending accounts”
~East Valley Tribune
And, some of those benefits include a lavish pension plan. Teachers can often be retired with a full pension more years than they actually worked! Nice work if you can get it.
Meanwhile the AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction, (read AZ Superintendent of Fiscal Destruction), Kathy Hoffman, in a official news release on May 28, 2019 claims
“Lawmakers Fail to Fully Fund Education Despite Massive Budget Surplus”
Mind you these supposedly stingy Republicans voted another ½ Billion $ more for the edu-cartel just this year!
One of the ways the edu-gangsters try to make their claims believable is to compare teacher pay to other states where the cost of living is drastically higher; more false advertising. And, let's not forget how incredibly wealthy the school vendors, government contractors and government employee union bosses are who have latched onto the system like a tapeworm.
I wonder if the schools will ever be “fully funded”. The answer to that is "no!" to hear the ed-parasites tell it. In reality, public school teachers are grossly pampered part time employees (working only 6 months out of a year!) who live better than a lot of us working a full time job until we die.
Get out of my face you whinny, entitled, self important vermin!
