A NEW DAY IN TEACHER UNIONISM

Take a look at Gotham for a link to the speech that newly elected Chicago Teacher Union leader Karen Lewis gave last week upon taking office. She won an election where her Caucus of Rank and File Educators defeated Chicago's version of Unity. Dissidents taking over a union isn't a pipe dream. It can happen.

I will have more to report on the school closing decision here in NYC soon. Thanks to Jeff for keeping this issue alive while I was away.

Wishing you guys lots of luck. Accommodating to bring down the ideal of quality universal public education is wrong in so many ways. The behavior of the UFT caucus is bully behavior. Bill Gates brought in by UFT leaders is reprehensible on so many layers. Gates has proven to be a failure in education endeavors. He doesn't know education like many leaders, who are so far from the classroom and plainly don't give a darn.
