"There is an organized effort to place blame for budget shortfalls on educators and other public workers. It is one of the biggest scams in modern American history." -- Education votes
Teacher Ken
“Teachers are being targeted,” said Ken Bernstein, a Prince George’s County teacher who is helping to coordinate the march. “And they are finally coming out of their classrooms and getting interested” in organizing a political response.  -- Washington Post
Brother Fred
Fred Klonsky, a Chicago-area teacher and delegate to the convention, said the Obama administration should take note of the 72% vote. “For an incumbent Democratic president to receive less than 75% of the delegate vote at an NEA convention ought to cause some concern for the administration,” he said. -- WSJ
Joanne Barkan
"With the zealots’ mix of certainty and fervor, ed reformers have made this a wretched time to be a public school teacher." -- "The Grand Coalition Against Teachers"
 More seat time?
"Just extending a school day doesn’t mean, by itself, that you’re going to have high-performing schools. It’s not going to be simple.”  -- Noemi Donoso, new CPS chief education officer
