School Administrators' Alliance--Another Bloodsucker Bunch?

Who are these people and why does their leader lie?

"It seems to me that the sum total of the Green agenda is a dramatic reduction in the resources devoted to educating Wisconsin public school children," said John Forester, director of government relations for the School Administrators Alliance. Green has been reluctant to commit to the state's continued payment of two-thirds of school costs, which amounted to $5.6 billion last year, while promising property tax relief, Forester said.

WHAT "two-thirds" Mr. Forester? DiamondJim didn't deliver "2/3rds" in the current budget and has NOT promised to do so (if he's in office) on the next one.

Who are you trying to kid, Forester? What "dramatic reduction"?

Green also kicked around the possibility of incentive pay for good teachers. Stan Johnson, a reliable source of inanity, had a comment:

Stan Johnson, president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state's largest teachers union, called teacher merit pay plans unproven and expensive.

"If you're going to have to have a complete plan . . . you're going to have to fund it as though everybody could get it," said Johnson, whose organization has endorsed Doyle. "And that's always a problem."

Say what? How do you KNOW that it has to be 'funded as though everyone could get it'? And how do you know the plan is "expensive" if it is "unproven"?

Just keep throwing the stuff at the wall, boys. SOMETHING'S gotta stick.
