Morning Joe attacks teachers… again!

As each panel member led by Campbell Brown went around the
table they assured us they were not attacking teachers.
Perhaps the most disconnected was lawyer David Boies who
complained about tenure protecting bad teachers during times of layoff but then
lauded Teach for America who puts non-education grads with barely any training
in classrooms. Sure they might be excited but I imagine the college of ed grads
they displace would be enthusiastic too.
Mike Barnacle also mentioned layoffs, well Mike, unions
don’t lay off teachers, did you really think they did? How about fighting for more resources than against teachers having work protections.
Finally Campbell Brown said we need to treat teachers like
professions, well Campbell how about listening to teachers and acknowledge as a group they aren’t clamoring for merit pay, but what they really want is smaller classes, more resources and work protections too. Also who appointed
you the spokesperson for what teachers want? Where did you teach and for how
long? Oh that’s right you didn’t your husband looking to get rich(er) is the
reason behind your lawsuit.

As each panel member led by Campbell Brown went around
the table they assured us they were not attacking teachers. But that’s what
they were doing and it was despicable.

  1. What is the context of this response? Is this a TV or radio program?
    Also, why are we even listening to non-teachers talk about teaching?
