WaPo's Jay Matthews is freaked out. That can't be bad. He's still ga-ga over schools like KIPP where teachers have no voice, no rights, and work 16-hour days. He just can't imagine teachers acting powerfully in the world of policy.
"I struggle to understand union strategy and politics, usually too far from the classroom to interest me."Conservative think-tankers and DFER Republicrats are going nuts. Anti-reform dogmatists may also be freaked-out. Especially when they see good folk like Linda Darling-Hammond and Adam Urbanski on the board of the AFT's reform initiative, funded by the power-philanthropists. I think that's fine.
