The United States has become no place for teachers

2 posts / 0 new

According to research done by the Hamilton Project, our nation has lost more than 200,000 teaching jobs – and perhaps as many as 300,000 – since 20-09.

These layoffs are occurring at the state-level – where cash-strapped states don’t have enough money to fund education budgets, and Republican governors are pushing for tax cuts for the rich rather than investments in the future.

No nation has ever achieved prosperity by investing in more billionaires than more teachers.

The poison pills of past conservative thought were carefully laid, blowing the legs off anyone who steps toward a true democracy.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
