    ...thinks the purpose of public education is to educate children -- not to "support the best interest of teachers". Obama knows this.

      GOTV will suck in Michigan and Ohio this Fall.

      I hear what you are saying.

      But I also think that Obama's policies are bad for kids.  Can you truly justify firing every teacher in a district?  Do you really think that it's a good idea to force a kid with an IQ of 30 to take a standardized test?  Do you really believe that it's okay to completely undermine the funding basis for America's public education system via charter schools?

      Most teachers enter the profession to educate children and make the world better.

      But teachers also need to feed their own kids, send them to college and ensure their good health.

      I make no apologies for efforts to ensure a decent wage and good health care for teachers.

      And if teachers don't stand up for their own best interests, who will?

      If Obama has decided that he doesn't need my help to keep Dems in power, then I will have to look elsewhere.
