State lawmakers must feel guilty about rally for education

Published: February 15, 2014

Regarding “Scheduled education rally angers state lawmakers” (News, Feb. 7): Perhaps the state representatives who are alarmed at the teachers coming to the state Capitol may have a guilty conscience. After all, the representatives intend to balance the budget again without considering a salary increase for teachers. Sending more "reforms," mandates, requirements and regulations isn’t a problem but more money isn’t even considered unless there are more strings and hoops to jump through. Before they cut taxes, they need to pay teachers a decent salary, give them parity on state insurance and make a healthy deposit in the retirement fund.
