Did you intend to say that Teachers Unions (CTA) are EVIL? With that I would agree, but PUSD is not Evil....not always right but not even close to evil.

I think you guys are finally getting the message. It is not just the Teachers Union but all the Public Cesctor unions that are the problem. They are driving all the City, County, State and Federal Govt. to bankruptcy. The Feds can print money but that will only last so long before we go into rampant inflation and no one will buy Treasury paper. We are the world's biggest Banana Republic with no rules as Emperor Obama decides which companies will survive (with his favored constituencies like unions getting a huge share ahead of senior secured creditors) and which will die. There is no longer contract law being followed. We are getting similar to the Bolsheviks that could confiscate private property. Let us hope this trend can be stopped.
