Republicans vs. Teachers.

Via on Mar 1, 2011

Jon Stewart joins Republicans in protecting 2% Richest against greedy middle class teachers.

And all these years I was under the silly impression that teachers ought to make more..! More than, say, bankers.

My mom’s a lifelong teacher. The idea that any grade school teacher is in the profession ’cause it’s easy and a nice way to get rich…would be laughable, except that it now seems to be the view of Republican and Fox attack dogs.

Enjoy your new America, fat cats! Without a middle class, you’ll never be able to leave your gated community.

    I don't think I will ever understand how it came to be that teachers are among the most unrespected people in our country. They should be paid triple what they are.

    Yup. I live in a town where people who make a decent living. (I think that's over $250,000 a year according to Fox News via Michelle Bachman) send their kids to private schools. I used to think about this statement quite a bit when I first moved here. Go John go! I just love when he gets furious.

    Our future depends on educating our youth not waging terribly expensive wars in the Middle East.
