When the fact is that far too many children in Michigan are not able to read but these Union teachers with the full backing of this current President of the United States ( because of financial aid from said Unions too this current president)has the gall to stand up and try to say that the thugs and bullies in the Union and these non preforming teachers are right while the American public and voters are wrong to expect the (right to work) which is a Federal protected right, that is beyond comprehension. It is foolish and it is totally WRONG Obama! Bad president- bad- bad bad president. Your dog is better able to lead this country!

Many Michigan schools are closed today as hundreds of teachers converge on the Capitol in Lansing to protest Michigan right-to-work legislation which was just passed by Republicans and is headed to Governor Snyder's desk. As CNSNews points out, many teachers from Detroit are in Lansing today while their students are struggling to read at home.

In the public schools in Detroit, Mich., according to the U.S. Department of Education, only 7 percent of the eighth graders are grade-level proficient or better in reading.

Remember: it's all about the kids.
