Yes, the teachers who make more than most every other Oregonian are telling you, who suffers in this recession or who are under or unemployed that you need to cough up more money. This demand comes while they work part time for a six figure salary and benefit package.

Well, I'd like some new language entered into the contracts this year.
1. You will not proselytize your leftist political beliefs to our children. You will keep your political beliefs to yourself and just teach your class.Thank you. You already pick my pocket. I think it's fair that you not be allowed to pick off my kid.
2. You will not encourage our children to get community service credits by volunteering at your favorite political charity. The Bus Project is not a charity, it is a political organization.
3. You will not give credit or encourage our children to participate in the anarchist movement that is Occupy- fill in the blank.
and I'll add a fourth one:
4. You must allow students to livestream or capture in some way all of your lectures so the world can watch.
