All public institutions are subject to intense scrutiny as of late, as a report from Daily Kos contends.You can check out the report from Phi Delta Kappa that offers data to support the contention that the larger public is much less critical of public schools and teachers than some would claim. And by some, read right-wing conservatives and libertarians. I think many claim that the “unions” are inextricable from the teachers and that’s simply not true. I paid my dues, sure enough, but it was more of an insurance policy. Right or wrong, I was not active in the union at all, could not identify my union rep, and didn’t follow negotiations. I had no time. That’s the reality.
