Susana's veto of pay raises for level two and three teachers and the other education cuts are vengeance for teachers' activism against Skandera's crappy proposed reforms and also vengeance for the Senate's refusal to confirm Skandera. Very mature, productive way to govern.
Agreed about entry-level teachers, but why make a point of singling out higher-level, experienced teachers - out of all the thousands of state employees given raises - and making their legislatively authorized and approved pay increase "optional"? Experienced teachers are an exceptionally valuable educational resource, and are hardly a dime a dozen - where's the good in a slap in the face like this?
RLAD: yes, level 1 teacher is entry level. Which is why Susana's veto of raises for level 2 and 3 teachers is a vengeance move. You see, entry level teachers are new and haven't yet had the chance to experience the crap that Skandera and Martinez think are fine education reform and protest it. This is a good time to remind folks that the "reform" is just a transfer of money to education grifter firms who make up the tests, design the curriculum and then sell it to states.
Plus, isn't there even MORE monetary cost in losing more experienced teachers?
