what do you expect from the commies? There are good teachers out there willing to teach the kids and get them to learn and its a threat to the teachers unions. I agree its time to get rid of the unions altogether. Keep the good teachers and get rid of the bad ones.

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...
