Weingarten Calls Obama Ed Plans “Bush III”

AFT President Randi Weingarten joined other labor leaders in criticizing the Obama administration’s education policies as “Bush III,” reports the Washington Post. “It looks like the only strategies they have are charter schools and measurement,” Weingarten asserted. Jack Jennings, a president of the Center on Education Policy agreed, “Obama’s very much in a line of four consecutive presidents.”

    This is why I voted for Cynthia McKinney. It’s time to dump the democrats in favor of a party that will represent our interests (as teachers and as workers). Maybe the UFT will endorse the Green Party next election? Will the UFT learn from past mistakes or continue the endless cycle as we watch more and more of our rights taken away?
