    The Washington teacher’s union is going to attempt a put an initiative on the November ballot to overturn Washington’s new charter school law. I think this quote sums up the WEA/NEA’s position quite nicely.

    Jim Spady, co-director of the Seattle-based Education Excellence Coalition, which pushed for charter schools, said he was disappointed by the WEA’s action.

    “The union is afraid of giving teachers the same professional freedom doctors, lawyers and accountants have to practice their profession in an environment where customers choose which professional to use,” he said.

    “They’re also afraid of a public school in which the adults agree to be held to that extremely high level of accountability.”

    The union absolutely cannot tolerate competition, as that means fewer dues dollars.

    Remember- It’s all about the money.
