Lawmakers must wise up: Teachers are not the enemy
The Kansas City Star
One day, lawmakers throughout the country will wise up and realize that teachers are not anyone’s enemy.
Legislators in Kansas right now are among the nation’s slowest learners. Lawmakers want to prevent teachers’ unions from using voluntary paycheck deductions for political purposes, The Kansas City Star reports.
The attack against teacher’s collective bargaining rights is being done under the guise of helping school districts hurting for money. But the ruse is just a way of making teachers look like the bad guys instead of the Legislature, which should be funding public schools at a much higher level.
Lawmakers and Gov. Sam Brownback are pulling a Three Stooges trick on the public, and teachers are the ones getting pummeled.
