But tonight we have a new winner - Queens Parent, a commenter and a self-proclaimed "parent" of a public school child over at Gotham Schools.
Queens Parents wins the Dicker of the Day award for suggesting that because he doesn't get paid for a snow day, no one - including NYC public school teachers - should be paid for it:
Well if teachers aren’t working, why should they get paid unless they use one of their vacation days? If I don’t work tomorrow, I won’t get paid unless I take a vacation day. Why are teachers different?
Oh, yeah -that kind of rationale for why nobody should be paid for snow days really does deserve a Dicker of the Day award.
