  •  The teachers are standing up for kids (9+ / 0-)

    They want air conditioning in classrooms that can reach 95 degrees for weeks.  They want more social workers to help kids in poverty, up to 90% of kids in some schools.  They don't want tax money going to private charter schools when public schools are being starved for funds.  Those are some of the issues cited by a teacher interviewed by Ed Schultz last night.  Do we hear that in most of the media?  No.  

    It'd be nice if Richard Trumka and a few other big labor leaders put in a phone call to the president, asking him to lean on his old friend Rahm to STFU and give in to the teachers.  The administration needs labor's help the most right now, and they should exercise their power in the party to call in a big favor.  You should dance with them that brung ya, and Obama has some atoning to do with labor.

    For the love of money is the root of all evil; and while some have coveted after it, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6:10)
