Mike Rowe explains why I have the best job in the world.... and why whats happening right now is a hidden crime.
I am an instructor at a Career and Technical school. We are 'run' by 16 public schools and a handful of private schools. Our funding comes from them, from the State, from adult ed programs, and a few donations I gather.
At this time...... those schools are fighting for funding for themselves, and are lining up to cut our throat to do it. It's far easier to slash our programs than it is to cut unionized teachers back in their own districts.
No... they would NEVER say that out loud and in public, but the reality is self evident. They don't need to say it.
The reality.... the clear reality.... my school functions better and gives our students a more useful education than any other in the county, and perhaps in the state. Our students are being set up like bowling pins in the grand game of school funding, while people in ties fight over who can throw the ball at them the hardest.
