    “Beckon call”.

    Didn’t Bucky used to be a DJ at WKRP in Cincinnati?

    I doubt that the digital watch generation will get that reference. As an official ‘old guy’, I like it, though.

    Ah! An amendment to the ‘tablet of ten’.

    Please remind me, ColoradoRon, where in our Constitution does it provide for businesses to have religious beliefs? For that matter, where is it even suggested that Christian values exist?
    BTW: my religion prohibits your religion. Please cease and desist!

    Teachers do not buy “their” supplies, they buy the “school’s” supplies for the schools! At least in California, schools are required to provide all of the supplies necessary for student work. Unfortunately, many of the supplies do not arrive until the end of the school year, this after being ordered the end of the prior school year. It falls to the teachers to subsidize the schools, if the students are to have paper, pencil, tape, staples, rules (No, not ‘rulers’), and other items -including gym clothing- the teachers carry the financial burden. They are seldom reimbursed.
    Further, under Governor Schwarzenegger, the State of California ‘borrowed’ a large chunk of our retirement system money —to which the teachers contribute one-half. I doubt that we’ll see that money any time soon. So, who is subsidizing whom?
    I hereby grant you twelve months vacation, paid at the unpaid rate. Have a nice time off.

    Standardized tests’ results are a good measure of how boards of education and superintendents of schools are performing. Scores must be fine as few are fired!

    The cartoon’s a bit harsh, don’t you think?
    Although teachers make errors as frequently as those in other professions, their job has become increasingly thankless and demeaning. Where else would a twelve year old person be allowed to say “fuck you” to the person in charge without any chance of punishment.
    That many teachers are represented through Union membership should not be construed as a negative. I suspect that you participate in representative government yourself. Do you vote for Mayor; Governor? Do you fix your own streets or clean your drinking water?
