    I felt I needed to share this.Dear Elected Officials and Other Organized Movement Leaders: Lay people don't understand what Governor Walker is talking about when he says "Limit Collective Bargaining", "Give them the tools they need", "Payment based on a merit system"… My husband and I seem to be constantly explaining to people the implications of the changes proposed. There needs to be clarification by the Governor during his state addresses and/or a television ad that puts it into laymans' terms such as: "If we limit the collective bargaining of teachers, we can get rid of bad teachers and keep the good ones. With the current system, if a bad teacher has been employed by the state of WI Ed System for one day longer than the best teacher in the world, the best teacher would be laid off first – it's all based on senority instead of value and effectiveness." "If a numerous amount of teachers are in favor of getting rid of collective bargaining, what are the tax payers missing?" "If the union is so valuable to these teachers, they shouldn't be worried by the option of teachers choosing to be a part of it instead of being forced into it with no other option." "Milwaukee County is known for having one of the worst school districts in the country, yet the average teacher makes $101,000 for the 9 months a year that they work…something is wrong with this picture." I think you get the point. :o) Keep up the fight!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/phil-zuckerman/why-… is definitely challenging for all of us, no matter what side of the political aisle we're on. I don't come close to living as sacrificially and compassionately as Jesus.On the other hand, I think if more Christians gave cheerfully and generously–starting with their tithe, some of these social justice issues would/could be addressed by the church and not the government.

    I would be curious how other Christian teachers would respond to this program.

    LOL first thing I thought when I saw this article was, "Why is Zac Efron there?" Your daughter must be a fan.

        Ooohh ok, haha. I thought it was a funny "family values" picture. If you look closely at the pic, you'll see that the girl in it is wearing a High School Musical t-shirt.
