Last year, the media and Gilbert Education Association shouted from the rooftops: "Teachers are fleeing Gilbert Schools, and it’s all the fault of the Conservative Board"!
This year, after ginning up Gilbert voters, they got rid of those evil, fiscally responsible Conservatives and replaced them with for-the-public-good Leftists. The result? There are way more resignations. What do we hear from the media and union? Silence.
Except for one thing. Now they are shouting from the rooftops: "We need to pass an override! Yes, that’s it. We NEED MORE MONEY"!
The problem is this. Even when GPS has the money, the big-important-highly-paid Grand Poobahs don’t reward their teachers.
