 While some call for reducing benefits for our retired members, the actuarial reality says otherwise: reducing benefits, besides breaking a promise, will not solve the problem. A lack of revenue created this problem. Restoring revenue will solve it. -- Letter to Sun-Times

 The leaders of high-profile charter organizations and especially of Teach For America have a huge megaphone, lots of influence and media connections.  People listen to them. Perhaps this is not what these leaders really believe, perhaps they’re just trying to stir the pot, be “disruptive.”  But sometimes being disruptive is not transformative.  It is reckless, done without deep thought to long-term consequences.  And reckless is the last thing poor communities need. -- The Answer Sheet, "Forever young: the new teaching career"
