Do you think the Wisconsin vote could directly cause a teacher to commit suicide?

Or, do you think she had other issues?

  • Only if that teacher is STUPID!! You can go and teach in any other state being a teacher. Your dont have to stay in WI. Dont tell me youde stay because of family or other obligations. You ALWAYS have a choice to pick up and move. Its a matter of what your willing to give up. That law will be overturned by the supreme court! You CANT just bust a Union like that!!

  • Obviously she had other issues. It's never just ONE thing that drives a person to commit suicide.

  • That law will be overturned by the supreme court!

    It won't be upheld by the SCOTUS. They already upheld virtually the same rules for federal public unions,

  • Suicide is a selfish, disturbed decision. It is not the facts which determine, but the minds defect of reasoning.

  • The teacher obviously had other issues that contributed to suicide, you can try to blame the union but you'll waste alot of $$'s hiring atty's to hold the Union accountable. I guarantee the Union will find everything this teacher has ever said or done and drag her name through the mud, and she'll no longer be respected by her peers when they're done.

  • No, as other respondents have said , she must have had underlying issues of depression, schizophrenia or some other mental illness . No-one else is directly to blame , not the new law or the union

  • I doubt it was over this but I am sure Unions will try to spin it that way as much as possible. Mental illness is a very sad thing. Very glad she didn't lose it in front of students.
