    Jobs in the public sector, including education, were considered to be the safest jobs to have in previous recessions and even in the Great Depression.

    Not this time.

    It's an ill omen.

      I wrote a diary about that today.  The scary thing is how similar a lot of these reports are, and with public sentiment turned so strongly against the public schools I'm afraid it will only get worse.
