Information, news, and ideas about Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and Michigan schools; thoughts about education; and occasionally other stuff too.
That's good. Did you read that New Jersey Governor Christie was quoted as referring to teachers as "Welfare Queens"? No Kings so apparently it is only the females he has a problem with? That is just a really a nasty comment. Certain people don't want teachers to make any money. How can we have great teachers if we don't pay them? There is no logic to this.
That's an interesting point about Christie's comment. It probably won't surprise you that the majority of government workers are women (I think 60% overall; and definitely higher for teachers). And yes, I think there is an anti-woman bias to the anti-government worker campaigns. I don't think it's an accident that the anti-Planned Parenthood sentiment is rising at the same time.
