Since When?

Hm. The Mayor says I'm in the bottom 20 percent of my college class and didn't go to a very good school.

Oberlin College, my Alma Mater, is consistently ranked in the top 25 in the country. So that's a no-go. My GPA was a 3.8. That's probably going to ruin his "fact" stating right there.

He also says if he could just fire half of us union-clinging liberals (well okay, I added the liberal part in), the school system would be...HEY PRESTO! Fixed. He would simply double the class sizes and put a GOOD teacher in there.

In all my conversations with my fellow educators, guess how many times I've heard someone say, "I want more money?"

Zero. Bagels. Big fat round hole in the middle doughnuts.

The old refrain? "I want my class size to be smaller. It's impossible to do my job really well with too many kids."

When will they ever learn.
