I don't have the video and it does come from Fox News, so i realize a lot of liberals will blow it off, but...
The Fox reporter quoted a Madison teacher as saying that her going on strike was a learning experience for her students and that she won't go back to work because it will further the student's in her classes education.
I am not sure he quoted her 100% accurately, but from what I have read in posts in the Madison newspapers and other liberal blogs, this is the sentiment of Madison and Madison area teachers.
Well, these teachers are an embarrassment to the teaching profession. Maybe shut down the schools one day to prove your point, but Madison teachers have closed down their schools for at least 4 days and counting.
That's 4 days of not receiving any education in the classroom.
That's 4 days of families of having to find babysitters for young ones.
That's 4 days of students who live in poverty, not receiving free lunches and breakfasts.
That's 4 days the severely disabled students who don't get out of the houses on a regular basis are stuck in the houses where they live.
That's 4 days that teenagers are allowed to roam the malls and the City of Madison.
That's 4 days of school that student teachers at U.W. Madison will have to make up somehow.
That's 4 days that some school employees will not get paid like school cafeteria workers, secretaries, custodians etc.
That's 4 days that private sector employees that work with Madison schools won't get paid, like crossing guards and bus drivers.
That's 4 days extra that Madison students will have to spend in school after the school year is supposed to end and this may affect student jobs and perhaps some vacations.
That's 4 days that Madison area police officers have to babysit the teachers and other protesters, guaranteeing that they will have to work overtime and be away from their families.
The Madison teachers are nothing but a bunch of selfish and pathetic bunch of so called "educators". They are not teachers but a bunch of spoiled brats.
I am sure there are many more ways the Madison teachers have embarrassed themselves and may things difficult for the residents of Madison. They are an embarrassment to the teaching profession and I hope that the Department of Education in Wisconsin will take a look at this and revoke the licenses of the teachers that participated in the illegal strike.
