Wisconsin School District Docks Pay for Teachers Who Played Hookie to Protest

Welcome to the real world, Teach!

I take that back — in the real world the lot of ’em probably would have been fired for this stunt, but I do appreciate the irony: teachers skipped school to protest, ostensibly because they didn’t want to lose money… and doing so cost them money:

The Port Washington-Saukville School District will dock the pay of 82 teachers who skipped school last Thursday to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s budget bill in Madison, Supt. Michael Weber said Tuesday.

The absences, which left the district without about 43% of its teachers, essentially crippled the school system. Administrators were forced to close the high school 1-1/2 hours after students arrived because there weren’t enough teachers to staff classrooms.
The teacher absences shocked school officials and parents, who said they thought the Port Washington-Saukville School District would be the last place to experience a mass exodus of teachers because of the remarkably good relationship between the district and union.

Meanwhile in Wisconsin, it’s “whiny liberal roundup time” as state troopers are trying to locate and bring back missing crybaby Democrats who are shirking their responsibilities.

Nice that the police are forced to focus their efforts on finding Fleebaggers instead of, you know, arresting rapists, child molesters and murderers, isn’t it?
