Jerry Houseman opens mouth and inserts foot (again)

In today’s Bee, Melody Gutierrez, writes about teacher’s raises this fall amid a sea of pink slips. In the piece Jerry Houseman goes on the record, yet again, with his anti-teacher bias. Someone, perhaps a high-paid PR consultant, should tell him it’s inappropriate to use the term “everything” when debating a complicated issue.

“(Teachers unions) hang on to it real tight,” said Jerry Houseman, trustee of the Sacramento City Unified School District. “They think of it as their normal compensation. Everything involved in teacher compensation is difficult to negotiate.”
