America needs to start reform with getting rid of the "rubber rooms" as well.

    The most vile of them all. Sick people that search and destroy the children.

    Teacher's Unions should be banned.

    Why?

    Would NAMBLA be upset?

    Would there be a few less female teachers thinking they can steal a young boy's future?

    Why is this silly? I'm going to have to ask you to back up that statement.

    Got a link or anything?

    you want to be a teacher? Go rape and molest children.
    Oh yes, I can already tell this article is going to provide a salient argument to anything.


    I find this stupidly offensive.

    Boooo.

    I think everyone can see that's irrelevant.

    No.

    Because the idea that we should dissolve unions in some bizarre attempt to stop child predators is completely illogical, maybe?

    Common sense.

    Well, who is coddling the criminal? I gather you would be for reforming the union first?

    Why does the state or federal government need special unions to begin with?

    Have you ever had a union job? I get the feeling that people who make unions out to be some horrible monstrosities must have never been involved with an actual union. It's simply workplace democracy. Unions allow workers to voice their concerns and remedy them more efficiently and effectively. It insures a give and take between workers and employers rather than the employers simply dictating and the employees being stuck with it.

    Only one of the few private sector ones.
    If you say so.
    Agreed, however working for the government puts these unions in a padded situation.

    I think this is what Herbie is trying to illustrate, quote:

    "He hasn’t set foot in a classroom in seven years since beating criminal and disciplinary charges. Chancellor Joel Klein keeps Olivares in a “rubber room,” a district office where teachers accused of misconduct sit all day with nothing to do."

    Do you guys support paying over 94K a year for one guy to sit and do nothing?

    No, not particularly. I think problems like that could be resolved without going to the extreme of abolishing unions for state employees all together though.

    Do you really think there are only two extremes? Either pay child molesters to sit around and do nothing or abolish unions altogether?
    Perhaps states that are having this problem should renegotiate.

    I'm thinking that is the only way...

    Here is a list of some left-speak that can maybe make a dent.

    Snopes is a partisan hack site. People should stop acting otherwise.

    Wow, an ad hom attack against a site which I clearly said has no information!

    And of course no mention of the link I did provide to another site reporting the same "news" but with New York taking the place of California.

    It does tend to make the right/left wing fear mongers job a lot harder by disproving all their favorite myths, right? ;)
    tulc(could see why that would be pretty annoying to some people) :sorry:
