DISLCAIMER: I hate on FOX News and CNN in equal measure. In fact, I hate all network/cable news. There is no such thing as unbiased TV news reporting anymore. The end.
The topic is completely incendiary, and I can see both sides. From an edu-political standpoint, I find the union guy’s comments somewhat simplistic, if not circular:
We don’t protect bad teachers. We protect teachers’ rights.”
Really though, I’m interested in your comments. Having been both a parent and a teacher, it’s sticky. Maybe some of my colleagues who usually just lurk (and you know who you are) will weigh in, but I’m interested in where everyone stands. BoomR is on the high seas, so I doubt he’ll see this for awhile, but I’m sure he will have something to add. How bout it, fiends?
PS – just found this video link on a friend’s Facebook profile. Hysterical!
