[quote:Anonymous Coward 356061:MV81MjIwMTBfODAzNjA1M180MTQ5MkU4Rg==] READERS' PLATFORM Who needs teachers? Who needs credentials? Andrew S. Ross Sunday, March 16, 2008 Last week was not a good one for the state's public school teachers. Not only are up to 10,000 of them facing pink slips, thanks to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's budget proposals, but their entire raison d'etre has been called into question during the raging debate over homeschooling. The recent state appeals court ruling that would impose stricter credentialing requirements on homeschooling was denounced by Schwarzenegger, not to mention newspaper editorials and opinion pieces. Given its parlous condition, "who needs public education anyway?" was a common sentiment expressed by Chronicle readers on SFGate. Many seemed to believe that qualifications to teach were about as tough to obtain as the ability to flip burgers. As one Bay Area teacher remarked on SFGate, everything she has gone through seems to have produced, at the end of the day, just one thing: "People on message boards insult all of your efforts." Below, edited for space, are three differing views, drawn from the more than 2,000 homeschool comments on SFGate. - Andrew S. Ross, Chronicle Interactive Editor http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/03/15/IN04VI14C.DTL [/quote]
Just heard on KFBK 1530 AM radio today at around 3pm in Sacramento, CA, that 10,000 teachers were given their "pink slips" in the mail! Budget cuts have forced the Governator to begin making cuts in staffing for schools. Because of housing slump the revenues expected didn't materialize. CA state government is bankrupt! Some cities in CA are bankrupt as well! Just getting better and better isn't it?
