Astounding. You MUST see this.

Wow. I had to watch that twice. And he gets a standing ovation?? The honesty is refreshing, at least. I guess the criticism the NEA receives about putting teachers' interests ahead of childrens' isn't so outrageous after all:

"As the unions put their distinctive stamp on the nation’s schools, the objectives they pursue are reflections of their own interests, which are often incompatible with what is best for children, schools, and society. This presents an obvious problem—and a serious one—for a nation that wants to improve the quality of its education system."

Teachers unions are neither for fair wages nor quality education.
