If teachers want more money they should find a useful, marketable skill set. Babysitters are a dime a dozen.

 

This is clear evidence as to why we continue to fall in world rankings on education, and on a lot of lists, below even Russia (the evil empire).

 

Although when a failing education system creates people that will join your political party I can see why you'd make that comment.

Actually I'm pretty sure that is the very definition of being paid fairly.  Supply more than exceeding the demand at the given market price.

 

Unless you are saying that the prospective teachers have no marketable skills to find other jobs.  That would be just mean.

 

 

Like I said, it's more of the fact that people would like to stay in the state they are in/grew up in, considering the comparison of what we pay teachers and what people in this state make aren't on par.    Not to mention factors such as spouses, or kids in school here, etc.  Eventually they'll leave though.

 

And just this year before the school year CMS couldn't fill a ton of teacher openings so I take your story with a grain of sault.

wife went to CMS job fair a couple of weeks ago and the ratio of applicants to available positions was about 100:1.

 

Sounds like teacher supply is still pretty strong.

 

I think a good portion of that is because of people that would LIKE to stay in their home state and do what they went to school for.  Just because (and I doubt that ratio is correct) there are more people looking than available doesn't mean they are getting paid fairly.

Jesus is lampooned around the world, in newpapers, cartoons, TV shows, etc.  Our government even pays for "art" which desecrates Christianity, and still, if some moron were to shoot someone, by an large, the whole Christian church would condemn the shooting.

 

The reason you have to put yourself in their place, is because you can't find a bunch of gun toting Christians out there killing people who disagree with them.  They get snarky as hell, but they don't normally cut off peoples heads, shoot them, etc.

 

Guess you can go back a thousand years though as far as putting yourself in their place.

 

 

You still didn't describe the scenario I was saying, but that's OK.

 

And.... can't find a bunch of gun toting Christians out there killing people who disagree with them?

 

Serious?

 

That's America for the past 50 years, minus yes the decapitations.

Same here. It almost appeared like a Saturday morning cartoon (not in the good way). They should've gone with Namor. Ant-Man never interested me.

 

 

They can't do Namor.  There is something weird with their rights to that character that are still unresolved, when it comes to stuff like movies and games.

 

People thought Guardians would fail as well because only comic followers really knew about them, but that hit it out of the park.   I have faith, but we'll see.  The action seems kind of cool in my opinion.  

 

I'll admit I'm not super excited though, I think Strange/Ms. Marvel/Black Panther would be better, and a bunch of others.  They really took away one of Ant-Man (Pym)'s biggest plot-lines by having Stark create Ultron in the movie and not him (like in the comis).
