    Besides squashing teachers' unions, it also squashes teachers' salaries.  Wage compression within the teaching profession will result/is resulting.  In the long run, this will cause even more gifted teachers to leave the profession.  

    The real motivator here is corporate profit.  It's about big business getting easier access to our tax dollars.  

    And I absolutely agree that poverty is at the heart of the matter, as well as economic segregation.  Failing schools will continue to fail if we don't address issues outside the classroom as well as inside the classroom.
