You can count on the teacher's union to teach one thing. That freedom is bad. You should be forced to join a union, you should be forced to be taught by a union teacher. You are allowed no options nor are you allowed to compare educational results with alternatives.

Teach for America has been a breath of fresh air for public schools around the nation.

The group recruits top college graduates to spend several years teaching is some of our nation’s worst schools.

Most of these graduates did not plan to become professional educators, but they want to make a difference in troubled communities. They are focused on helping underprivileged children learn, and they have little interest in compensation issues or union political schemes.

That, of course, does not sit well with teachers union officials. They think Teach for America instructors are invading their turf and taking job security...
