On Teachers union threatening to sue Janesville School Board
Bill, how many great teachers is the board willing to lose? I guess the message is clear... Very clear the board does not value the teaching staff. Some on the board, some on these blogs say "let them leave" I say teachers go ahead and sign .... Look .... You will find better... Leave ... Then see Janesville scramble all summer long to hire staff. There are districts all over this area scooping up our great teachers... Yes, Janesville has some great teachers! There is a steady path being made of those that are leaving, a LARGE pool that is looking but waiting to see what you as a board decides to do. I guess things will most likely work out as most things do. Our great teachers will continue to teach.... Just for someone else. Janesville can fill all the schools with students right out of college, cheaper, inexperienced... Oh but wait, you see the great ones will get experience here and LEAVE because the board is making Janesville a place you would NEVER want to stay. That is the word in the state and beyond... "Janesville, Wisconsin schools... That is the place with the Crazy school board".
On Longtime teachers await Janesville School Board benefits decision
Maybe you should pay all the retiring teachers for the money they have spent out of their own pocket for items for school and kids when they go to retire instead of health care, to show a little appreciation that you are changing their benefits....oh wait ... Bad idea the district would be broke... For real this time! Way to go board... Once again showing why you are known state wide as the CrAzY school board.

On Fundraising group unveils plan to help Janesville Schools

On Teachers, Janesville School Board confront major layoffs
local81 you speak about the "union" as though it is one person you have a personal beef with. I am part of that same union and I am far from happy about the lay offs. Giving our dues to save a job... what cut the Jea gets would hardly save any. I am not sure where you get your information? As far as someone unqualified filling your position you also should know that is not true, any person filling a position must be qualified for that position. Maybe they just are not as nice as you are? Our union not only serves the needs of it's members it serves the needs of our students, I would think you would know that. (class size, programs, resources etc.) I hope you find some kind of peace with the world you seem a little confused. :)
Dear Janesville, I am a slob and a union thug who does nothing all day long except think of ways to cheat my fellow tax payers... are you kidding me... the mess that the School district of Janesville is in is not the teachers fault. It is not the Jea's fault. It is Everyone's responsibility. You can say cuts had to be made, but yes it will affect children, yes we lost GREAT teachers. If you read this and respond in your thought "this is not my fault" have you ever attended a school board meeting? volunteered in a school, asked questions about the schools? or do you just sit back and complain or do nothing?. It is time to stop complaing about the teachers, the Union, the School Board, or those lazy union thugs and get busy. No matter what side you are on, do something anything big or small, but no complaining... complaining gets all of us no where. As for the School District of Janesville I will be giving you absolutly all that I can as I have done for the past 20 years of my life. Knowing that there are people out there who do not value the job I do. But guess what, I am not doing what I do everday for the people who are reading this, I do it for the kids. They deserve it. I love my profession, with PASSION! I know my days are numbered until the extreme right trys to cut my program but until then the kids I teach get 100 MILLION% of me and my well educated experience. So tax payers you are getting your moneys worth out of this Union thug/slob. Have a good night Janesville.
On Is Forward Janesville right to bring Walker here?
David Koch (Walker’s buddy) ran for Vice president with the Libertarian party in 1980. One of the things on his platform was the elimination of public schools. Walker now has the same agenda. So if public schools close and education becomes “private” is everyone ready to start “paying their fair share” when they have very high tuition to pay for your kids K-12 education? Oh ya and if you have a child with special needs you may have a hard time finding a school… in the private world. I suppose medical needs might eliminate your child’s chances of being accepted into a good school too. Better be sure they are a star athlete then they would be a shoe in where ever you would like to go. I am just saying if there are a few protestors, which I sure there will be, I for one will be thanking them, first for working a full day and then coming out to stand up not just for their rights but for the rights of every child in the state. And I am confused how is a state worker or a teacher paying more money into their retirement going to give someone else more money to spend? I do hope the answer is in all of us...what is the right way to treat others?
