Mark Levin Slaps Around Hatrick and His Budget, Commends LoCo School Board

By Lloyd the Idiot

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin absolutely lays into Superintendent Hatrick and his proposed 11% budget increase.  YouTube clip below, and link to LCRC Facebook page here discussing it which includes interesting points raised by School Board member Jill Turgeon and the three jobs her teacher-husband holds.

In a nutshell, Levin commends the five members of the board who have stood up to Hatrick and rails on a Lo Co teacher whining about a 3% pay increase.

    That’s “$15 copays”, not 15 copays.

    “If I had said “there is often a corruption problem that develops among politicians” You would almost certainly agree with me. …But this statement does not imply that all, or even most politicians are corrupt.”

    Sorry, Bill, but (imo anyway) that statement does indeed imply that most politician are corrupt. It implies that it is their nature or that it is the nature of politics. While I think it would be unfair to make that statement, there are many who would indeed agree with it. But do you really want to go around painting teachers as a group with entitlement mentalities in the way people have painted politicians as corrupt in today’s society?

    “Btw, I personally would not have chosen the word “whining” to describe what teachers were doing. I was only defending Mr. Levin’s right to do so.”

    He has the RIGHT to do so, Bill, but he was clearly not RIGHT to do so.

    Thanks for the answer Bill.

    Not sure that all jives. We were on the plan a few years ago and I remember a tiered pricing structure for prescriptions. But at this point I think it’s irrelevant in the big picture. Thanks again.

    Bill thanks for the COLA answer. The only real big problem I see with the raise issue is the longterm implications of continuing the practice for the most experienced and highest paid teachers. I have pushing 30 years of experience in the private sector and everybody I knows continues to get a COLA-type increase as a minimum (I know this is not true everywhere). While I could absorb it for a year or so, to continue a pattern of no increases year after year would mean that I would be getting an effective pay cut year after year. So I see the problem these teachers are facing.

    I don’t think you can keep the practice up for long without loosing many of our best and most experienced teachers (who are also our most expensive – perhaps that is the goal in the end – it is often a practice in the private sector after all).
