Now that we know the economy can be saved by paying teachers less money everyone should feel at ease. But first, maybe a closer examination is in order. In Florida, the Governor wants every school district to get by on 10% less money (loss jobs and larger class size will do the trick) as well as have the teachers pay a higher percentage into their pension and health care plans(can you say "cut in pay"). Since the Governor wants to eliminate all collective bargaining contracts, he offered to raise the pay of all teachers who excel in having their classes do well on standardise tests. Of course the governor doesn't worry about having to pay too many bonuses, because he basically thinks most teachers are lazy, good for nothing union slackers.
Here's my question. What if -- what if all the teachers take him up on this challenge and suddenly all of Florida's school children start passing those standardize test like there's no tomorrow. Where will all the money come from to pay the promised raises? Surely not form his rich buddies who have every tax benefit imaginable. No he'll just come up with another bull shit idea. Maybe -- re-instate slavery.
