Real problem is teacher pensions

I would like to remind the public and the local school boards of the huge cost of education in Michigan. For your information, it is NOT the actual cost of teaching that is the financial burden but in actuality it is the cost of teachers NOT doing their jobs — pensioners. Today, the pensioner is the largest creditor in Michigan, to the tune of $29.4 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. That’s $2,900 per every man, woman, and child in Michigan. If we, the people, allow the teacher lobby/unions in this county and state to keep packing the school boards with pro-teacher shills, it will only lead to higher taxes and less learning opportunities for kids.
