Wisconsin has great schools at the moment so I'll stick around until I get done and get my bachelor's but I'm outta here as soon as I can pick up a job in another state...or even another country at this point.
Madison didn't have school for almost a week because the teachers were protesting.
I feel bad for the teachers. They get paid smurf to teach students who rarely value the education they're receiving and have to deal with parents who either don't give a smurf about their kids' education or they're completely unappreciative of the work the teachers do. There's a few bad apples but on the whole...
And now they want to strip the one thing that balances out being underpaid?
It's unfair and cruel. Way to show a huge percentage of voters how much you "care".
