Union Teachers Are Overpaid
The role of the Teacher in society is a noble calling.
Emotional propaganda about the level of the compensation paid to these hardworking people pushes an agenda of Unionist.
But what is new about the Unionist trying to enrich the Union and its members. What is wrong with the Union’s approach is its continuous support for unqualified or worse members of the Union.
A quick study of history will expose the Unions as self-serving, with a disregard for the future of the business, industry or government.
Cities are burdened with pensions that were awarded because of political payoff to Union members for supporting candidates for a public office. The selfish approach to politics in as close to corruption without an indictment.
But the Teachers are the worst. Teachers are dumbing down the future of those that they have a fiduciary responsibility to. It is this breach of trust that makes the Unions villains.
The automobile Unions of the seventies asked for more pay while producing a product that was inferior to others in the marketplace. But the consumer had a choice of purchasing product supplied by other producers, which they did.
Railroads were burdened with keeping outdated positions on train crews to protect Union jobs. But what happened to the Railroads and those paying for the hauling fees. The Railroads were forced to choose between losing money or postponing repairs. The consumer paid for the Union jobs.
Our economy is based on an educated worker who can provide their services in the marketplace to create the goods and services of our economy. Goods and Services which our economy competes within the world economy.
Teachers are not delivering the education society is paying for to our future. Their cry for more pay for a subpar effort is not acceptable. But the Unions now control the politics of education and have dumbed down generations of children.
It is time teachers take responsibility for the quality of education provided. It is the Teachers who allow the Union to continue to protect bad teachers. This protection is robbing our Country of prosperity promised to each new generation.
Teachers know the bad teachers. They are accountable for the retention of the bad teachers. It is these bad teachers and bad administrator who are diverting education dollars from the goals of education.
Unions are fighting the Charter School and Voucher programs. Not because they provide a lesser product, but because they will expose the corruption of the Union system. And its protection of incompetent teachers.
Many different management theories have to be shelved because of Unions. Schools should be exploring ways to provide our future a better education. Being responsible for the child instead of blame-shifting to parents and administrators.
One of the failures of education is teaching personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is a foundational ingredient for a democratic republic.
What about the Idea of Cooperative Charter Schools? Where the teachers become the owners. They would be paid the same per child fee from the Government but would be in control of whom the teachers are.
A teacher could be removed by a no-confidence vote of their peers. Since the Parent would have veto power, by removing the child, and the teachers could remove any child who is not willing to behave and learn, education would be the focus.
A model to be compared the Nanny State Union Dominated Public Schools.
The Public Schools would have to adapt or face losing all of their students
