The stunning hypocrisy of people who hate teachers (rough draft)

Morning Joe had Campbell Brown on to discuss the ruling in
California that struck down teacher protections. What you ask? Who was the
teacher they had on to describe how important work protections were and how
unions don’t set budgets or lay off teachers? Come on guys you know hey didn’t
have a teacher on, why bother, who cares what teachers have to say or think.
Well Mrs. Brown who has never met a public teacher she likes
and is able to equate a few extreme cases into the entire teaching profession
and whose husband runs charter schools, said both, we need to get rid of
teacher protections because during budget cuts the newest teachers are the first
cut and then later, poor kids are suffering because all they get is the newest
teachers and they don’t tend to be as good.
Um WTF!!!!!
Are there new teachers that hit the ground running and are
there veterans who have stayed longer than they need too? Sure. But the truth
is there are a small percentage of both groups and once again when did a union
ever lay a teacher off. If great new teachers are being laid off how is that
the fault of older more experienced teachers!!!??!!!  Why aren’t people fighting against budget cuts and for better
funding? They aren’t and that should tell you all you need to know.
Destroying the teaching profession are these people’s plans
and we need to stand up. Write letters to the editor, demand political
candidates state their support and then follow through or the exact opposite of
what our president has done. We need to draw a line in the sand and say no
more.

Friends you may disapprove, you may
be afraid to fight, you’re afraid for your job? Well, too bad! We’re in this
war for the profession, boys and girls. It’s simple numbers. They have billions
and billions of dollars but we have millions and millions of voices. And every
day we should be fighting back because our families and our students need us
to.
