Abby Zimet

Shocker: With teachers' bargaining rights and school budgets on the block, a new study finds that teachers in the U.S. work hard, make nothing and get no respect. But teachers and staff at a high school in Australia have had enough. In what is being billed as a real phone message, their response to the abuse has been making the rounds. It's probably fake, but still hilarious.

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
