Michelle Rhee Leaves A Legacy of Reform
In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, [SIZE=3]**education unions **have worked to thwart attempts to reform the failed status quo, **seeing any opening for children to escape monopoly public school systems as a threat to their power. **
While Washington, D.C. still has a long way to go to improve the school system, Chancellor Rhee has worked to place the well-being of children ahead of the demands of special interest groups such as the education unions.[/SIZE]
Rhee was probably pushing for many good reforms, but the more she pushed for them the more incentive the edublob had [SIZE=3]to win the next election, remove her from office, and undo her efforts.
And eventually they did.[/SIZE]
Michelle Rhee hired by one Mayor was asked to resign by a mayor put in office by the teachers union. Isn’t it great that unions can help choose their own boss ???
[SIZE=2]Obama said he is in favor of education reform BUT,
But, because of pressure from [SIZE=3]education unions, the (Obama) administration and some members of Congress are working to phase out the successful voucher program, which provides scholarships of up to $7,500 to low-income D.C. children to attend a private school of their choice.
At a fraction of the more than $18,000 per-pupil spent in D.C. Public Schools, the Opportunity Scholarship Program has been an unequivocal success.[/SIZE]
Well it seems quite obvious that education UNIONS are NOT in favor of a good education.
As for the OP, if they wont accept pay cuts they will get teacher cuts…bunch of greedy idiots.
