Finally, A Model

After five years of ever-changing mandatory programs that do nothing to help anyone, the New York Times has finally given NYC Schools Chancellor Joel Klein a roadmap to achieve all his goals in one fell swoop. Over in Palestine, the school system is run by Hamas.

They're not quibbling over merit pay, charter schools, or overcrowding, or how many teachers they can fire. They pay the teachers once in a while, some part of what they owed, and if the teachers don't like it they can walk. As a matter of fact, they just did.

Government officials are loudly proclaiming that the strike is illegal and will result in no raise. Can you imagine the possibilities here in NYC? Klein could invoke the Taylor Law against the striking teachers, have them pay him, and there would be a net increase of funds available for billionaire charters and stadiums.

It's a win-win.
