The irrepressible Patrick Hickey comments on that maddening teacher-union radio ad:
The Teachers Unions have flooded the air-waves with a whiny voiced ‘Hush-talker’ posing as a teacher -” it’s a bad idea, Governor Quinn!” The ads beg for more revenue – more taxes.
If not -Illinois will lose quality teachers! Non Sequitur! The ad also whines that Illinois Public School teachers ‘only qualify for Partial Social Security Benefits!!!!’ Why is that Murial? Could it be that Illinois Teachers opted out of ‘paying into Social Security’ – their fair share – in order to allow tax-payer to buck up for their retirement?
Really. Are we to believe that union members are better teachers than those recruited for charter schools, to give one example. Or than (non-unionized) Catholic school teachers coast to coast?
