Whoa. Are public sector unions planning a similar “regime change” here in America?
If not, why would Weingarten be cavorting in the Middle East at a time when American public schools are seeing massive dropout rates, budget reductions and reforms that strike at the base of union power?Details are scant regarding Weingarten's trip or agenda. The union didn’t identify her traveling companions, the Egyptian unions they met with, or what action plan may have been devised.
Meanwhile, Weingarten hailed the launch of a global "Quality Public Services Campaign."
It would be wise for the union to focus on "quality public services" at home because in far too many communities in America, they stink. And Weingarten's union bears much of the blame for the lack of quality, at least in public school classrooms.
