    He's probably already diverted it to Planned Parenthood.

    From the article PW posted: "Pay here averaged $50,359 per year compared to $52,178 in the 16-state region."

    The 16 state region is the SREB - the states comprising the Southern Regional Education Board - and includes Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Those states have higher costs of living and higher paid teachers. If you factor in cost of living are our teachers really doing that poorly?

    Go and spend a full day with a Louisiana teacher and let me know if they are "really doing that poorly."

    Nothing to do with them doing poorly. I'm married to one and she has a great job.

    He flat out lied to the teachers and support workers. They were taken in by his lies and their votes put him over the top. He didn't get a vote from my household.

    That lying arse Edwards and the Dems have already shafted the special needs homes and facilities around the state at the end of last year. Monthly fees doubled for those private paid families trying to take care of their loved ones. The charge is now $6,950/month!!!

    You have to wonder at how gullible they were! I admit there was no great candidate in opposition, but any idiot that paid attention could have seen that he is a liar! Shock- he lied to them!

    Exactly! So my son now has to have a roommate.

    This will prayerfully be ok but this population doesn't like change and in our case our son is almost totally blind as well as his other needs. Another body moving around in his small room is very difficult for him.

    My post was referring to the article PW posted. It talks about the possibility of a walkout and was the reason for the question. Are they doing poorly enough to stage a walkout?

    If you remove they mid-atlantic states from the SREB our teachers are being paid average to above average for the region. Again, is there enough discontent to where they walkout/strike?

    No. I think you know where the grumbling comes from. It's from the union do nothing teachers and the "support staff" workers who consider themselves as valuable as the teachers. The media LOVES to jump to the defense of these liberals looking for hand outs.

    Agreed. I'm afraid that has become the norm even in Texas these days.

    So, let me get this straight: A Democrat lied to the teachers union, and NOW the teachers act shocked?

    Elections have consequences. The teachers got the governor they wanted. I hope it taste real good going down. (I do sympathize for teachers such as PD's wife since she didn't support the idiot!)
