I think if Obama is going to wade into local politics, it should have been done through his Secretary of Education, and then it should be a remiunder
to both sides that this is about the students, and not themselves.
From the State level, the Democrats in my opinion are handeling this completely wrong. By running away, it puts the spotlight on those actions and
distracts from the real issue. They should have had the vote, all the dems vote against it, and then make their case to the people.
I am not a fan of Unions because for the most part they have this unusual sense of entitlement regardless of their job performance.
There was a study that was done on private education and public education, speciufically using catholic schools. The cost per student was almost 2k
less than what Public schools pay, and the private school scores were a lot higher.
Reason being private schools are able to terminate under performing teachers..
At the very least, its something that should be looked at for public schools to see if that standard can be adapted.
