No Teacher Left Behind

A bill in the Montana legislature would pay school districts $1,000 new money for each teacher, each year. This amounts to $13 million annually, or $56.27 in new taxes per Montana family.
Some schools are losing students. Since the amount of money a school gets
depends on the number of students enrolled, schools are losing money.
One might think that fewer students may need fewer teachers. That is,
unless one was a teacher’s union president or the sponsor of the
bill. It appears that public schools exist to serve the interests of
teachers as much as, or more than, the interests of students.

The bill should be called the No Teacher Left Behind Bill.
