When will teachers follow the lead of Wall Street…

…and start making some sacrifices for children?

That’s the question Jon Stewart asked last night. Go to www.thedailyshow.com. to be reminded of the “debate” why the Bush-era tax cuts could not be extended for those making more than $250,000. But let’s stick it to the average Wisconsin teacher who makes $51,000.

Keep watching to hear the compilation of the talking heads talking about the deleterious impact of a salary cap. Oh the talent exodus! Oh the need to pay top dollar for top talent!

Hmm, wonder who else is talking about capping salaries? Here’s the New York State Council of School Superintendents reaction to the proposal to cap salaries based on district enrollment, with a maximum salary of $175,000 a year.

Also find 8 minutes and 11 seconds to watch the segment later in the show with historian Diane Ravitch.

    John Stewart is such a great advocate! I just hope Albany is listening!

    How scary is it that the sanest, most balanced coverage from a middle class / pro-education view is on Comedy Central?
    We need to Speak up and Speak out!

    The regular MSM outlets are bought and paid for. Jon Stewart stands alone as a shining beacon of journalistic integrity among corporate shill actors who are paid to bloviate the corporate line…and his show is supposedly mock news.

    I love Jon Stewart even more now. His comments give water to a parched and thirsty group of teachers who need public support to provide a public service.
