Republican governors running for the presidency are going out of their way to sew up the teachers’ vote. Chris Cristie of New Jersey would like to punch the teachers’ union in the face, saying, "They’re not for education for our children. They’re for greater membership, greater benefits, greater pay for their members. And they are the single most destructive force in public education in America."

Scott Walker of Wisconsin cut $300 million from the funding for the state university system. Then he gave $250 million in taxpayer funds to build a new stadium for the Milwaukee Bucks. It’s easy to understand his point of view. After all, everyone knows that liberal professors fill their students with progressive claptrap so that they vote for Democrats, Why encourage that sort of thing?

John Kasich of Ohio not only dislikes teachers’ unions. He would like to get rid of teachers’ lounges. "If I were not president, but if I were King of America, I would abolish all teachers’ lounges, where they sit together and worry about 'woe is us.'" He has a point. Since teachers have such an easy life, instead of working on lesson plans and such, they sit around in the lounges all day and plot. That’s where they come up with plans to teach secular humanism and such.
