Today is the first day of the teacher’s strike here in Tacoma.
Today is also the last day my five children will ever attend public school, as long as there is any kind of teachers union in place.
I fired the teachers union.
In addition, I am going to do whatever I can to break the union.
A free and beneficial education system is run by parents, for the children, through their representatives on the school board. Teachers, administrators, janitors, and lunch ladies are all a means to that end. They are hired by the consent of the parents, at the whim of the parents. They answer to the parents, and no other authority. What right do they think they have to hold our kids hostage?
The union could not exist were it not for their support from the state and federal governments. Remove that, and the unions will disappear.
This means the days of having our state and federal governments involved in public education is over. Our kids and our kid’s education is not a political prop. They are not negotiating chips. They are not going to be used as an item in a presidential debate ever again. The roles of defending our rights with force has nothing to do with educating our children. The government has no more right to be involved in education than they have in determining what we can eat, or what clothes we can wear, or what words we choose to use.
Our kids are the primary and only reason for our existence. Were it not for our kids, our entire world would be meaningless and void. If you believe in evolution, or God, or whatever, you will logically conclude the same. The propagation of our species, the sanctity of life, are one and the same.
