On Walker: Education proposals to soon be introduced
When do parents get to be evaluated for the product they send to the classroom?
On City uses grants to improve parks
Those darn govt workers making $20 an hour plus benefits. Who cares if they are doing work that improves a community. We could have contracted that work out to a company who pays their workers half that and it would have cost $45,000 instead of $35k. I guess going through a middle man and paying more administrative costs would be worth it if that laborer does not make a decent living.
On Teachers reject Janesville School Board's offer
I guess someone with a doctorate should be capped at $55k. BTW he had to pay for his Ph.d. YOU paid for the $100k administrators to get theirs. I think "glamour" would refer to fashion/modeling, but way to err on the side of drama and hysteria. Keep digging.
This just in... Rep. Knilans gives up $2500 this year to assist his former employer out of bankrupcy and $5000 next year. Next up, Gov. Walker enrolls in ballroom dancing and an independent study to finish his B.A.
Why did you go to work Retired AF? Was it the intrinsic reward for the service you provided? Maybe it was because you believe in the product you were producing or selling. Most people I know go to work to collect a paycheck and pay their bills. Any teacher who says they work strictly for the children must have a rich husband.
On Workers of the world, recite!
"If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool."
"If capitalism is fair then unionism must be. If men and women have a right to capitalize their ideas and the resources of their country, then that implies the right of men and women to capitalize their labor."
Frank Lloyd Wright
On JEA won't reopen contract
The JEA knows exactly where Bill and DuWayne want to take the district. Stripped of time to prepare, larger classes, unlimited meetings, meetings for the sake of announcing the next meeting, not to mention salavating at the chance to strip any compensation they can. The last sentence needs to be emphasized. The so-called crises turned into a small surplus yet nobody has been called back. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. This has never been more true with this school board.
On Janesville School District officials debating fate of $3 million leftover from 2010-11
Ah how easy it is to stereotype. My favorite is the flag toting patriot who looks down their nose at me because I'm not a warhawk as they drive by in their Kia because Chevys are too expensive cuz of the union. I get a kick out of the super lefty crowd who pays twice as much at a local business because it is down town or they offer organic products. So much for not buying local. As much scorn as this city has for people who worked at places like GM and now the teachers, they sure don't mind when their money flows into their businesses as Shrek wishes did more. Oh my favorite one today was Bill complaining again on the radio show about too high of taxes and then complaining cuz he aint got access to a computer to do the city's survey. Geez, businesses started going paperless 10 years ago to save money. Shouldn't you admire govt doing the same? Keep your patience teabaggers, only a few more months before you can complain about your street not getting plowed in a timely manner and then complain about your taxes being too high.
On School board still wants to see list of cuts
Doc, the answer to 2 questions is the same answer...Q1: Why is Janesville in such a mess?Q2: Why is Janesville allowed to raise the tax levy more than the average school district.A1,2: Because Janesville has raised the tax levy so little in the last several years. Yes, as painful as it is to admit, most districts have levied much more and as a result, they are in less of a mess, and they cannot raise their next levy very much. As for your fair and balanced resource, remember Janesville was in a disaster before Scooter came to office (before state aide was cut and before the bickering over healthcare and pension could begin) because of the lack of taxing over the years compared to the average school district.
On Janesville School Board looks to union for an answer
Yeah, and quit building roads in front of your house, cuz I'll never drive on them.
