  •  Thanks again for the excellent diary (6+ / 0-)

    Unfortunately Democrats and Repbulicans are racing to outdo each other in bashing educators.

    The sad fact is that none of them, not Obama or Duncan, not Walker, Snyder or Christie, have a clue. The collective ignorance is astounding.

    Educators outperform the Health Industry (#37 in the world), the legal system (#1 incarceration rate in the world, for many years), and business (given the woeful recent record of our corporate overlords, does anyone truly believe that we should run schools like a business?). Yet we don't see the President or the Thugs going after those folks with the same invective they reserve for educators.

    •  So true until, (0+ / 0-)

      you have taught, you can't possibly know how much work it is (and how much fun it is) to teach. I've been teaching at the college level for five years. Education needs more attention. A lot more. I am disappointed that Obama hasn't made education more important, but he has done a lot of great things.
