As the handwringing over the New York City teachers contract continues, NYC Educator offers up a, shall we say, modest proposal. Suffice it to say that it has something to do with bringing some legitimate businessmen into the discussion.

Naturally, I abhor violence. But why can't we have a mobbed-up union boss? And please don't lecture me about discrimination, because mobs now come from all over...
Screw the cutesy television commercials that say how hard we work and how unappreciated we are. They cost us bazillions in dues, and just make the Daily News that much more vicious when decrying the perfidy of teachers....
I ask you--is it too much to ask the forces of corruption to align themselves with us for a change?
