  3. i wonder how many of these teachers and others who have lost their jobs like hope and change now? yes hope and change everybody will be stupid and broke.

     
  4. California and the other states need to take education back from the feds. These teachers need to be replaced with actual teachers that sincerely care about the children and not lining the pockets of a bunch of corrupt hooligans. If the teachers union think they are gonna raise taxes,they have another thing coming.

     
  5. Do these teachers not understand math?
    Elections have consequences…
