CALLER: I am an elementary teacher myself, and I think what the teachers in Wisconsin are doing is deplorable. I myself in Michigan can't find a job because I have a master's degree equaling too much money. They can hire two newbies for one of me. But off of that, here they are walking off the job; teaching their students that it's acceptable to just call in sick if you don't like what's going on. No, no, no! So I think that it's just... It blows my mind that they're even considering and tolerating the actions of these immature teachers in Wisconsin.
RUSH: Let's put one thing to rest right now, and that is: The last people they care about are the children. The last people they care about are the kids. The last thing they teach about is education. This is not about students. This is not about education. This is not about teaching. This is not about learning. This is about themselves.
