HE WAS ONLY A TEACHER
The bullet pierced him,
he was only a teacher,
he would have preferred to live is my guess
instead of providing
a twelve year old a lesson in fire arm death.

Does your governor blame teachers and their unions for the poor performance and tell the citizens of the state that $38,750 is too much for a beginning teacher like they do in MA? Or the average Nevada salary of $53,450 is ruining the state’s economy? I wonder if Connecticut felt a lifting of financial burden and an and improvement in overall standardized test scores last year? We give oil companies 4 billion per year in subsidies and complain about teacher salaries? Tell a teacher they will only get a raise if their students don’t murder them and the student does well on national standardized testing? We are fucked up, yes WE because we let out politicians entertain the thought of the uselessness of teachers and present their jobs to us as nothing more than financial drain.
