I believe the governor of Wisconsin has it wrong. Not that I disagree with his points, but, having been a school negotiator for years, I believe the word "BARGAIN" is the definitive word here. Nothing in the collective bargaining process says that only one side will gain by the process. In dividual school districts, for instance, retain the right to bargain. Both sides present their case at the bargaining table. Discussion then ensues. It continues until either an agreement or disagreement is reached. The process of bargaining has then been realized. Further action is then decided by the individual bargaining group. The end result may very well be a strike by one side. At least let us call it what it is. Let's have some backbone here. On both sides.

Right now it is all politics. It has nothing to do with the kids. Let's face it, education in this country is failing. What makes the teachers want to maintain that failure? Money, of course. As it always is.
