Well, once again, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is babbling nonsense. The latest diatribe against teachers is that the public school system could do better with fewer teachers — about 50 percent fewer.

What planet is this man on? Does he not realize that the vast majority of teachers in the city public school system work extremely hard under the most difficult conditions? These include overcrowded classrooms,lack of essential supplies and unruly students, not to mention the lack of administrative support.

The mayor has never been in a classroom, and does not have the knowledge or experience to be an educator. He is a corporate billionaire, and has absolutely no concept of how to effectively run a school system, as was evidenced by his total ignorance when he hired Cathie Black last year as chancellor. We all know how that political gerrymandering turned out!
