What should we make of anti-teacher fliers?

The Janesville School District has dedicated, professional teachers, and the vast majority does great work to prepare our children for bright futures. Our teachers don’t deserve to be labeled “radicals.” But that’s just what fliers distributed anonymously around Janesville did last weekend while also revealing salaries of the district’s highest-paid teachers.

In our editorial Wednesday, we’ll explain why we see this distribution as shameful.

A conservative Milwaukee organization, Citizens for Responsible Government, or CRG Network, compiled the information at the request of a local person whom the organization wouldn't name. Distributors inserted some fliers into The Gazette’s home-delivery tubes. They did so without authorization, and this newspaper is not connected to the CRG or the fliers in any way, shape or form.

Regardless of their politics in this volatile era, Janesville’s teachers don’t deserve to be labeled radicals. Instead, they earn our support.
