If you've ever wondered what sort of long term effects progressive policy positions will have on an American state, take a good long look at California.
A public school teacher in San Francisco has recently taken medical leave while battling breast cancer.
In addition to her medical bills, she will also be forced to pay for a substitute teacher to cover for her at Glen Park Elementary School.
A 1976 California law says if any public school teacher misses more than 10 days, the cost to fund a substitute teacher will be deducted from the teacher’s salary.
That comes to about $203.16 a day.
The Glen Park teacher has asked to remain anonymous. However, parents at the school are speaking out agains the unfair policy.
A GoFundMe for the teacher stopped collecting donations after receiving $13,000.
