Los Angeles pays people not to teach

According to the Los Angeles Times, "About 160 instructors and others get salaries for doing nothing while their job fitness is reviewed. The collect roughly $10 million a year, even as layoffs are considered because of a budget gap."

Please remember this the next time the teacher's unions beg and plead for more and more and more of your hard earned tax dollars for education.

No matter how much we gave, it would never, ever be enough in their eyes. It's about time they started putting some food on our plates, educationally speaking. That will never happen, of course, until there is school choice and competition.
