Please visit www.anchorrising.com.  Don Hawthorn has an excellent recap of the East Greenwich strike and the tactics used by the NEA.

  1. I’ve included some bullet points from Mr. Hawthorne’s article. I’m tired of having our children used as a bludgeon to enrich adults. Considering how poorly our children are educated in RI, you would think we’d stop falling for the NEA’s lies. Maybe some day soon?

    LESSON #1: THE NEA LIES REPEATEDLY

    LESSON #2: THE TEACHERS’ UNION CONTRACT MATTERS GREATLY BECAUSE ITS TERMS DOMINATE TOTAL SPENDING IN EAST GREENWICH

    LESSON #3: RHODE ISLAND RESIDENTS ARE ALREADY GENEROUS IN THEIR SUPPORT OF PUBLIC EDUCATION

    LESSON #4: RHODE ISLAND RESIDENTS HAVE THE 7TH HIGHEST TAX BURDEN AMONG THE 50 STATES

    LESSON #5: IT IS TIME FOR A PARADIGM SHIFT IN OUR THINKING
