Why educators should support Obama
It’s funny (not HA HA, but strange) that most of the blog chatter attacking Obama’s education program is coming not from the Republicans, but from hedge-fund Democrats or left-wing purists. Both groups claim to be supporting Obama. But the first hates his strong relationship with teacher unions and his opposition to vouchers, while the second group argues, he’s “just the same” as Bush/McCain.
Former teacher, now a Stanford prof and Obama advisor, Linda Darling-Hammond posts a pretty strong response to the latter group on the UFT’s Edwize blog. Thanks to Edwize’s Leo Casey for the heads-up.
