This is about VIOLENT threats, stalking, etc. against school board members not parents speaking up or even yelling at school board meetings.
The latest data from the Federal Reserve shows that the top 1% has more wealth than the middle 60% of the income distribution. The additional 3% will not affect the lifestyle of the ultra-rich. Keep in mind the top marginal tax rate in 1960 was 91%. This level if income inequality is economically and politically unsustainable. The wealthy will benefit if there is more stability in the middle class and working poor, since they will be able to purchase the goods/services that make the wealthy rich. Blue collar workers work HARD and are essential to keeping the country running, but their standard of living is decreasing as is the middle class. I don’t begrudge the wealthy the fruits of their labor, but they need the services of the working class in their businesses and to maintain their lifestyle.
Totally true except, “not being a fan of polls” takes away from the point that many complaining the loudest about how the state, local, school, social, and other institutions in this country can’t be trusted do so while beating the drum of patriotism and how American exceptionlism.
Yes the country has progressed to “not totally racist” but that doesn’t mean that the problem is solved!There is still a lot of improvement to be made.
Which parents? To quote a coworker, “it is hard to get people excited about moderation.” In my state there is a group of very vocal, very angry “Parents United” parents who feel entitled to THEIR way of thinking. Screaming and yelling at school board meetings to have their way, refusing to listen to what is really being taught/suggested. Now I believe they have the right to express their thoughts at School Board Meetings, they they DEMAND as though they are the only parents in state. Not only did they want to get rid of Critical Race Theory (which was NOT not being taught or even considered) the leader had a list of 100 words that teachers should be banned from using or they would be brought before a board for a disciplinary hearing. Individuals and groups have the right to their say, but too many feel entitled to have their WAY.
‘This is from the Salt Lake Tribune: History packets that claims “most slaves were generally treated kindly” in the United States and had “reasonable living conditions and hours of service” were pulled from the shelves of a Utah learning center this week.’ Yep, it is the Left that is trying to brainwash kids!
I enjoy this comic, but I wish it was easier to read — a darker and clearer font would be nice!
I wish it was easier to read this comic. The print is not dark enough for it’s small size
Are you talking an average taxpayer, or an average taxpayer with a bachelor’s or master’s degree? In my state they started raising the pay because too few students were choosing to go into education. And I know of quite a few multi-generation teachers who were telling their kids not to become teachers. Most teachers I know start teaching with a bachelors degree, and continue to take classes to certify in other areas and a large number become National Board Certified Teachers or get their Master’s degree.
Congratulations! Enjoy the time with your family, especially the new little one, and will look forward to when your cartoons return.
