Editor's Comment: I'm a big fan of the Education Minister Lucy Molinar. She's trying to implement fundamental and far reaching changes within the Panamanian public school system. The teachers unions, and more than anything else a very small handful of left wing activists who don't actually represent the will of the majority of the teachers they are supposed to be representing, are actually engaging in political actions as part of their efforts to create and expand the new FAD political party. They want all public school teachers to sign up and follow them, and that's not happening. So, they are constantly doing these threats to go out on strike. Over what? The teachers have gotten raises and the masses are generally happy. Screw those guys...
