Quote of the Day - Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. - Louis D. Brandeis

Are The Special Interests In The Governor's Office Or The Classroom?

Is it a lawsuit or politics?  Teachers have filed suit against the Governator, claiming he has failed to provide the minimum level of school funding mandated under Proposition 98.  It's a writ of mandate seeking the return of some $1.8 billion in funding.
It may have started when Governor Schwarzenegger set out his plan to limit tenure for public school teachers.  They're fighting back with an ad campaign blaming the Governor for all types of ills in the schools.  Not all teachers agree, however. 
Who's making the grade?  Are the teachers right or is our fearless leader?
