Anger over PA. school budget unites unions, school boards, administrators against Corbett

http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=%2F20120412%2FNEWS%2F204120323

Meanwhile, yesterday Governor Gashole said that if the public doesn't like the school funding situation, they should go to their school board and complain. ..... umm, you have further limited the ability of school districts to raise revenue .... and you increased their pension payments by millions per district .... and you have cut their funding by one billion dollars.... and you have diverted much of their revenue to the cyber charter schools owned by your buddies.... and you haven't done anything to reduce unfunded state mandates.... what do you want the public schools to do?

1. Isn't it obvious

Corbett and the Republicans want the public school system to fail...and for those who cannot afford to attend the cyber charter schools...well labor in the fracking fields will need bodies...

This is what happens when you have stupid voters...


Good job Pennsylvania!!!

2. The choices are all bad.

Do you lay off teachers and increase classroom size AGAIN, cut funding for things like music and art, raise property taxes or a combination of all of the above? No matter what districts do, people are not going to be happy.
