American Federation of Teachers-New Hampshire Incisive Candidate Survey
Steve MacDonald, author of Granite Grok, posted on June 26th the wonderful new candidate survey AFT-NH is distributing, which is centered on two words: “money and power.”
McDonald stated that:
The entire survey is dedicated to asking whether you will do anything to curb public union power or will vote to change how public union teachers are compensated, their pensions, including whether you would support any legislation that would make it harder to raise taxes.
Can’t put road blocks on the path to legal plunder. Gotta have more taxes. Money and Union Power. That’s the entire survey.
There are questions on voter ID, Vouchers, Charter Schools; do you support right to work and collective bargaining rights; would you block dues collection through payroll deduction, and they even ask if you would vote to block Obamacare? But my favorite….”Do you support the Free State Project?” I kid you not.
So what about the children? Screw the children. There is not one question about kids, students, materials, curriculum, facilities, or anything that has anything to do with legislators concerns about public education or educating children, unless you count the questions on whether you might be even remotely inclined to let parents (see also taxpayers) decide where to educate their children.
Here is a copy of the survey.
