"Public school teachers have taken a beating from politicians, opinion-makers, business and foundation leaders and just about everyone else. Lazy teachers, it is said, have wrecked our public education system. A March 2010 headline in Newsweek put it bluntly: 'The problem with education is teachers.' The authors asserted, 'In no other profession are workers so insulated from accountability.' Apparently the authors missed eight years of official impunity during George W. Bush’s tenure, and the corporate-driven economic and environmental disasters for which no one has been held to account." (03/24/11)
