    But as long as baby boomers continue to place their focus on protecting seniority and their raises over creating opportunities for young teachers they will be on the defensive in the reform debate. I have a PhD and 8 years of teaching experience. According to the union representative that Iowa Public Radio interviewed, I am not qualified to teach high school math without going back to school and burdening myself with more student loans to get certified. Just giving you perspective on how many in my generation see it. At least an online charter school would give me and others with subject matter expertise a chance to teach. The unions need a positive reform program that brings highly qualified teachers into the classroom, not just play defense and always be criticizing other proposals.

    Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
