Doug Tuthill of Step up for Students says teacher unions protect pedophiles and likens them to the banks responsible for the great recession. I can’t make this stuff up.

In a meandering piece in RedDefined Ed, Mr. Tuthill
who has his ample salary paid by the public as part of the 30 pieces of silver
he gets from voucher money said the following.  
A California political activist
recently asked me why it was okay for the California teacher union to save the
teaching jobs of pedophiles. I explained that teachers pay unions to advocate
for their interests. If the union prevails in a situation that undermines the
common good, it’s not the union’s fault. It’s the system’s fault.  Just as
we shouldn’t blame a defense attorney for convincing a judge or jury to acquit
a defendant the defense attorney knows is guilty, we shouldn’t blame a teacher
union for saving the job of an incompetent or immoral teacher.
This activist responded by saying
the California teachers union has so much money from mandatory union dues that
it’s able to control the political system responsible for protecting the public
from privatization. And this is why the private interests of California
teachers so often trump the interests of children and the public. I don’t know
enough about California politics to know if this is true, but I do know
political contributions often cause our elected officials to allow some
privatization to occur.
The excessive deregulation of the
finance industry which allowed the financial corruption that exacerbated the
Great Recession was caused, in part, by the undue political influence generated
by large political 
contributions from the financial sector.
You know unions protect pedophiles
just because it’s their job and hey we better look out before they cause an
education recession.
Oy vey!
