Watching the Dictators

Today will be the last day of Mike Antonucci's always-thorough, wall-to-wall coverage of the National Education Association's annual conference.

You can find all of it here.

Watch as the NEA debates measure after measure that has little or nothing to do with education!

Thrill as it sends money to the states to fight education reform in all its devious guises!

Gasp as it explores the idea of a U.S. Constitutional Amendment guaranteeing every child in America a free, high-quality, public education! (Forget that dusty old Tenth Amendment! It's old news! Why do you hate children so much!)

But really, read it. The teachers unions dictate education policy in much of the country. There's a reason our schools are so dysfunctional.
