Damn, damn, DAMN! →
[More:]Just talked to my wife. Classes at the charter school where she's taught for the last year just let out and the teachers went in to clean out their classrooms and stuff. When they got there, they got the word that the evil arch-fiend CEO of the company that runs the charter school is cutting back programs at the school, firing several teachers, etc. He's also gone back on a promise to pay for my wife's Gifted & Talented and Advanced Placement training this summer.
My wife has loved the last year she's spent there and loved getting to know the kids. The fly in the ointment has always been the evil arch-fiend. Based on today's announcement, she doesn't feel like she can work there anymore. But she hasn't been out looking for a job, either, so she may have no choice (unless she wants the uncertainty of substituting).
Why do sucky people rule the world?
