Uncle Irvin: School tax bills cometh

Remember, you get less than 1 percent on your bank savings accounts.
School teachers, meanwhile -- some of whom are your neighbors -- are rolling in clover, spending your tax dollars on vacations, because they don't work a full 12-month year for their annual salaries and benefits, averaging about $90,000 per teacher. Moreover, no one knows how they perform in the classroom with their pupils, because no one, or no system, is in place to review them. Even kids who flip burgers get performance reviews.
American property owners are among the dumbest in the world to allow a system like this go on, taxing and spending more every year without restraint. School boards which pass the budget and raise taxes every year are “collective zombies” with no spines.
Business as usual.
