The Consulting Firm of Van Roekel and Weingarten
Dennis Van Roekel and Randi Weingarten have turned NEA and AFT into front groups for those pushing common core on unsuspecting parents, teachers and students. The diversion of billions of dollars to common core and all that goes with it- is immoral. As kids starve due to lack of food and books- Dennis and Randi run the corporate show.
It is disturbing to see AFT and NEA back policy that is without evidence. Our professional groups have sold us down the river for some mythical seat at some mythical table.
Let’s be brutally honest. To back common core is to back the lie that schools are failing and that teachers are the problem. This is the lie that politicians like Jeb Bush and Michelle Rhee push. We MUST call out these lies.
Van Roekel and Weingaten must step aside.
