A Somewhat Different Take On Obama & The Teachers Unions

20080528__obama28_0635p1_2

"Barack Obama wants Western voters to believe he visited an innovative school north of Denver yesterday to highlight his commitment to educational progress. His real purpose: Winning the support of affluent unions seeking to stifle real educational reforms....If Obama really believed in educational reform, he would have cut the platitudes and made one simple pledge. “Yes, we can,” he would have said. “We can free our kids from union-controlled schools.” But Obama has no intention of taking on unions."

I'm not sure why you quoted this article. I followed your link and it's terrible. The comments against it were much better. It confirmed the first thought I had when I read this blog entry: I'd rather have our schools run by teacher's unions (and thereby teachers) than by a government that clearly doesn't understand education.
