Help Teachers, Don’t Attack Them

May 7, 2011
The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register

Editor, News-Register:

This year, I want to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week by thanking the teachers of our community for all of their hard work educating our children.

Attacks on teachers and their unions are attacks on public education. We cannot let our kids' future be a casualty of the budget battles.

I'm outraged by legislators who are "reforming" education by going after teachers' unions, instead of working with the teachers who want real change and progress in our schools.

Educators can do what they do best - educate our children - when their collective bargaining rights are secure.

Am I being selfish? Yes, because my daughter is a teacher. Why is it America takes the gutter action of attacking teachers? Why doesn't America put education as one of our top four priorities along side of jobs, healthcare and retirement? God bless our teachers. Thank you teachers and thank you my daughter for giving your all to our country's children.
