Let's start by defining ignorant. It is defined by American College Dictionary as, unlearned;lacking of knowledge as to a particular subject.
Attacking teacher salaries/benefits, without knowledge of the requirements to get and keep certification would be ignorant and sophmoric. Teachers and CEO's have a lot on their plates. Meetings, planning, reading, test scoring, and a lot of other items. Attacking either, not knowing their struggles, is ignorant.
Any person would be smart to have cash reserves. Some plan better, some are more fortunate, some are luckier, and some do not care. Attacking Shell for cash reserves is wrong. Attacking Shell for lobbying is mean-spirited; especially since one didn't attack NEA or SEIU. I can bet that Mr. Voser hasn't been invited to the White House as has Mr. Andy Stern (SEIU ).
American public education needs to scrap OBE and NCLB as soon as possible. American public education, dispite dedicated and certified teachers, has been getting PC, jello subjects, weak disipline and curriculums full of fodder.
Oh, by the way! Wealth producing industrial wages/benefits will, at least, cycle through the economy seven times. That is impossible with tax-supported wages/benefits.
It was bad enough for the eco-blog Climate Progress to attack Dutch Shell, without knowing all about it's operational requirement and Mr. Voser's job, but to use Climate Progress as a sole source for the letter to the editor was a poor choice.
