50. You seem to think unions should not be consulted and respected.
The union wants to know what the 90 minutes extra will be used for, and of course they want to be paid for it. There is effing nothing wrong with that at all.

They are only willing to give that money to schools which break with their union.

That is called union busting, and it is a democratic administration that is setting the atmosphere for it.

I notice now that this forum accepts almost anything as along as it is the Obama administration doing it. That scares the hell out of me.

Bribery is wrong, what Brizard is doing might be illegal...and no one here gives a damn.

It's become all about Obama right here right now. Screw seniors and teachers, but make sure we don't criticize him. We worked hard to get him elected, and I am sick at the atmosphere of compromising before the fact that he has set.

When I give that much money and time to candidates, I reserve the right to question.

I taught for over 30 years, and I was union all the way. They were the ones who got good deals for teachers who refused to pay union dues but sure as hell wanted all the goodies.

They are taking money and giving it to just certain schools to get them to do things their way. There is so much wrong with that, and I am sick of the support for it in this thread.

It is NOT okay. It is no longer about just one man named Obama, it is about a country quickly sinking into the kind of moral abyss in which cutting funds to seniors and treating teachers in an ugly way are simply okay.
