The Haiku Challenge

I am revolted by what is happening in Wisconsin right now.  The state had a budget surplus, frittered it away by giving additional tax breaks to large businesses, and is now attempting to balance the budget on the backs of teachers.  The ultimate victim?  The children.

American education is on the decline because we are not properly funding it.  The sense of entitlement is outrageous.  The desire to have a “world class” educational system without paying for it is insane!  We will not compete globally unless we can produce people who can think.  This will not be done by creating an educational system that focuses on passing tests rather than on critical thinking skills. 

Shame on you Wisconsin!

Accusing teachers of “lucrative” jobs and pensions.  Really?  Are you serious?

Bravo to the democratic lawmakers boycotting the vote.  Balancing the budget on the back of teachers who guide our most precious resource is shameful.

A good article is here.
