Is that it? Where is the meat of the story? What was the "split vote?" What were the opposition view points? Very poor reporting. I am thrilled to break the education union's monopoly grip, but give us some facts.
Poor Reporting...why do you expect better? In case you haven't noticed, news is now free and newspapers have laid off about 50% of their staff as a result.
Um, CabelaKip, what exactly does Education Minnesota have a "monopoly grip" on. It is, of course, the exclusive bargaining agent for Minnesota's public school teachers and some other education professionals. But that's sort of how labor law works.
How about a random drawing? Apparently job interviews, skills, experience, time in grade and other credentials are not determinant of success.
Sure. Let's lower the standards. Nice approach to solving the problem of quality teachers. What logic!
Let's open the way for alternative pathways toward getting a law license and a medical license too. Hey - I put a bandaid on my kid's knee and gave him aspirin a few times. That should qualify me to be a doctor, right? Let's break the AMA's grip on the medical profession too while we are at it.
ktslator - a labor monopoly is a labor monopoly. Are non-union teachers in private schools less qualified? I think not.
mrkottah - does the AMA ever demand higher wages for doctors or go on strike? I think not.
There has to be some type of union busting hook to this...hmm, what is it?
The new MN Legislature Business Plan. Break the unions, renegotiate contracts and attack the pension plan. Thanks NWA for showing the Politicos the way.
