On the other hand, Texas law says that teachers are to get health insurance comparable to state employees. Somehow it works out like this.

They pay nothing for their insurance, but we pay through the nose for ours.

Their families are subsidized, but ours are not.

And it is up to each district to define "comparable" -- although there is a state program they can participate in that is inferior to what state employees get.

But we are allegedly putting education first down here in Texas!

Getting rid of benefits is the first step in outsourcing all NCC school district jobs to India.

Teachers make $3.00 a week in Bombay. It just makes good economic sense.
