Morning Thread

Dear Bobo

Investing in education means paying teachers, you ignoramus. Who do you think does the actual, you know, educating? It's not unions against kids. It's unions trying to help kids. And when you make them fight over even the most basic issues, it impedes their ability to do their jobs effectively.

P.S. If you give great teachers 30 kids at a time, they are not going to be such great teachers. Teaching is based on personal contact, time to prepare and respond. More kids means poorer teaching. Just so we're clear.
