“Don’t blame teachers’ unions for our failing schools”

This is an interesting note I thought you might want to read. From the Flypaper:

    This most recent NPR Intelligence Squared podcast features two panels debating the motion “Don’t blame teachers’ unions for our failing schools” in an Oxford-style set-up. The audience starts out 24 percent in favor (as in, thinks unions should NOT be blamed), 43 percent against, and 33 undecided. Don’t miss this feisty debate that explores school “hell holes,” undesirable marriages, and the obligatory assertion (sorry Rick Hess) “it’s for the kids.” Panelists include AFT president Randi Weingarten in favor, with former U.S. Education Secretary Rod Paige opposed. Click here to go to the podcast and to see how the audience voted in the end.
