    I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

    “I’ll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.”

    He said, “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?”

    Nah, she can order for herself.”

    And that’s when the fight started…

    Beaut item on teaching, that’s the way I remember it in the US where I grew up (been Australian since 1976). Public education was the norm and school buses were free to ride and school lunches were cheap (and nowhere near so nasty as we pretended).

    Spent most of my working life as a teacher, not so diligent as your mum, but loving the job and the students.

    Good to see that Wisconsin teachers and public servants are drawing aline in the sand. I dedicate the YouTube link below to the folks who are standing up against dividing America into two classes.

    A brave new world for services

    “The drive to increase independent provision of public services is not based on evidence and will actually transfer power away from democratic bodies such as local authorities to unaccountable businesses and organisations, Unite argues. Assistant general secretary Gail Cartmail says: “Francis Maude needs to provide clear and well-thought-out evidence, or risk opening up an Aladdin’s cave for profiteering private companies to take over public services.”
