Is anybody else sick of Jeb Bush?

Jeb Bush who has compared my profession to doing yard work
and to buying milk sent me and the rest of Florida’s teachers a thank you note
today. Apparently our 4th graders did well on this test or that and
he wants to thank us and at the same time take some credit for it. All those
standardized tests and draconian teacher evaluations must be working right? It
doesn’t matter to him and his followers that his Florida miracle has been
debunked over and over again.

The truth is Jeb Bush has been terrible for education in
Florida and his reforms have set us back. He has taken every opportunity
possible to demonize teachers and enact policies that either privatize our
schools, stifle teaching or that kneecap the teaching profession and if he really wants to thank
us the best way he can do so is by going away and then staying away.

Mr. Bush we are succeeding in spite of you, not
because of you.
