A teacher in Green Bay, retiring after 24 years said:
"You can't get experience through a book, you've got to teach," she said. "I think a lot of talent has been lost."While, a superintendent of schools in Beloit said:
"It's a significant loss to our system, it's a significant loss to education...We lost a whole bunch of talent and a whole bunch of talent all at the same time. It disrupted the normal cycle."And already some boards of education around Wisconsin took punitive measures certainly to continue the teacher hemorrhage from the schools.
In Walker's union busting bill:
The law takes away the right of teachers and other public workers to collectively bargain over anything except salary increases no greater than the rate of inflation. It also disallows the automatic withdrawal of union dues from workers' pay checks and requires unions to vote annually on staying organized, making it tougher for public sector unions to stay viable.
