Wisconsin Teachers: Putting Kids at Risk

Why do these teachers hate Wisconsin’s kids?

A reader named Tom from Des Moines, Iowa, emailed me and asked some pertinent questions of these recalcitrant teachers. I have asked some of these questions here myself and I have heard a few of them floated on Twitter, Facebook and the radio, but it is good to have them all in one post.

The teachers, says reader Tom, keep claiming that it’s all “for the kids” yet their actions here prove that the kids are last on the list as teachers worry more about safeguarding their unions, their high salaries and lucrative benefits.

So if the teachers care about the children, why are they:

In the left’s formulation, all the things these teachers in Wisconsin are doing is harming kids.

All good questions. But let’s face it, they are all rhetorical because we know that teachers and unions do not care about kids at all. Unions are not interested in kids. They are interested in money.

For instance, Albert Shanker, former president American Federation of Teachers (1985) (was AFT president for over 20 years), once said, “When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children.”

This is how they feel about your kids, voters. They don’t care a whit about your kids. They only care about how much money they can steal from kid’s parents.

Finally, it is telling that the Old Media is not reporting any of this. If Democrats care so much, why are their actions proving otherwise? Worse, why are media types giving these Democrats a pass on that behavior?
