Institute for New Economic Thinking

Institute for New Economic Thinking | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
West Virginia’s public school teachers had endured years of low pay, inadequate insurance, giant class sizes, and increasingly unlivable conditions—including attempts to force them to record private details of their health daily on a wellness app. Their governor, billionaire coal baron Jim Justice, pledged to allow them no more than an annual 1% raise—effectively a pay cut considering inflation—in a state where teacher salaries ranked 48th lowest out of 50 states. In February 2018, they finally revolted: In a tense, nine-day work stoppage, they managed to wrest a 5% pay increase from the state. Teachers in Oklahoma and Kentucky have now revolted in similar protests.

It’s the latest battle in a contest between two countervailing forces: one bent on reengineering America for the benefit of the wealthy, the other struggling to preserve dignity and security for ordinary people.

If the story turns out the way the Jim Justices desire, the children of a first-world country will henceforth be groomed for a third-world life.

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

A very pointed analysis that identifies a strategy of the .001% to exacerbate the have and have-not economic class structure in America. This is, to be sure, controversial to many people, but is, nevertheless, an arguable perspective  - and worthy of consideration (in my opinion).
