Israeli Teachers Strike

One of the points Michael Fiorillo made at the Teachers Unite forum on The Big Business of Public Education was the global nature of the attack on teachers, their unions and on public schools. Here is part of a comment from an Israeli on a post at Pissed off teacher:

As a teacher, you must be aware of the teachers' strike. Teachers are getting half the salary of a bank teller. Teachers are receiving money each month from welfare in order to survive. Try teaching in a situation far worse than the misery caused by Reich Chancellor Klein and Reich Fuhrer Bloomberg.

Two years ago 14,000 teachers were fired and the principals were given unparalleled powers. Sound familiar?
