The salary problem that teachers face is quite serious. Some teachers have difficulties paying their rent. As an example, "Amid a wide gap between modest teacher salaries and Miami’s high housing prices, the county has a new plan: build apartments on school property and let faculty live there."  See the story here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/c … 39799.html

If I wasn't sexually inhibited, I would take  some extra pole dancing just to pay my bills.

Every moment of the day, we are being reminded that this world is built on principles which are not sustainable - it was an exploration, and it is reaching its conclusion.

We are being remembered that this society is dysfunctional. It's shouting it out louder and louder. It's no more about fixing the problem - it never was: it's about re-building on new foundations with the original values of Life. Those which, whenever they are getting involved, are bringing strength, health, fairness and happiness.

I agree. When the Janus case is decided in April we will not win.  This will be the beginning of the end for many teachers. Many minority teachers will be pushed out of the system because of discrimination. You'll see the middle-class dwindles and the black population will suffer even more.  We ,this generation, have forgotten what it was like without the union. Blacks cannot afford to live without a union.  OUR PRINCIPLES ARE INDEED NOT SUSTAINALBE.
