Sorry- couldn’t resist.
Here’s another Op/Ed (this from the NYT) opposing the AFT’s take on charter schools. It’s pretty good with the exception of one glaring error:
This is precisely the standard that critics apply in comparing public education’s two main forms: traditional schools and charter schools. The most recent example is a number-crunching exercise of federal school statistics by the largest teachers’ union, the American Federation of Teachers.
Only in their wildest dreams is the AFT larger than the NEA.
