The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Randi Weingarten’s Tragic Error

Randi Weingarten has proven she is in over her head at AFT. She continues to display an arrogance and disdain for members rarely seen in the history of AFT.

Is there anything more immoral and unethical than supporting the diversion of billions of dollars a year to something called common core? 

How many more kids have to go to schools with no libraries available?

How many more kids have to go to schools that are crumbling?

How many more kids have to go to schools without access to nurses?

How many more kids have to go to schools and focus on common core test preparation?

Randi Weingarten pretends to oppose high stake testing obsessions yet…

A. She once said, “It is our job to prepare kids for the SAT.”

B. She supports a high stakes teacher bar exam.

C. She backs  test driven common core. 

D. She refuses to support the opt out movement.

E. She supports “Connect Ed” which diverts billions of dollars to computer infrastructure to support the massive online testing industry. Companies will get more profits while schools have to hold endless fundraisers to support music, debate, sports and theater programs.

The legacy of Randi Weingarten will be that at a critical moment in history she led AFT, teachers and students into the valley of inequality- eyes wide open.
