Another Bailout!

This one for the teachers unions. Business Insider is reporting:

Specifically, Arne Duncan, Obama's education secretary wrote the following to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid:

We applaud Chairmen Harkin, Miller and Obey for crafting legislation in direct response to these challenges. S. 3206, the Keep Our Educators Working Act, H.R. 2847, the Jobs for Main Street Act, and H.R. 4812, the Local Jobs for America Act, each call for $23 billion in emergency support to preserve education jobs modeled after the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) established in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This funding would keep teachers in the classroom while helping to sustain meaningful and necessary reforms in public education across the country.

  1. ...and for education, a favored species? evidence the "successes" of public education to date: we have a sadly uninformed populace with bobbing heads that endorse the "right" answers, not the discerning and thoughtful, even if difficult, "correct" answers. what a travesty. even though I earned my wages through San Diego Unified Schools, home schooling is looking ever more promising to me.

    our federal money is sorely wasted going into this hole. and class size/teacher ratios are not the problem. loving and supportive family influence (in favor of learning and discipline) needs to be increased instead.

    my new mantra: Go family, go! YOU CAN DO IT!
