The Seattle Times sinks even lower

In an editorial today, The Seattle Times urges the state supreme court to overturn a superior court decision that it was illegal for the state to eliminate minimal raises for retired teachers in 2011.  Thus the Times continues it’s history of being opposed to any money being spent on the public education system for any reason. They advocate that the state renege on its obligations. I entered into a contract with the state in 1969. I held up my end of the deal with 31 years of service in the classroom, and I expect the state to keep to its word.  I wonder if the Times has such an attitude toward contracts made by the Times with its suppliers, or expects suppliers to just sit back while they do no pay for services rendered. Breach of contract is not a casual position for the state, or anyone – except the Times.
