The Daily Snark 7/1
Anecdotal, to be sure, but given that little detail about WEA which somehow didn't come out during the coverage of Wisconsin's Days of Rage in February, I think it can be safely said that most districts suddenly find their fiscal situation better off because of Governor Walker's bill. I shouldn't have to point this out, but it apparently needs to be said: education isn't about the teachers. It's about educating students. I'm yet to see a coherent, plausible argument proving that teachers paying for some of their own retirement pensions somehow reduces the quality of education for students.
