Challenging Bennett's Argument
Oh, my goodness--a letter to the editor at the IndyStar that points to the obvious scapegoating going on from Tony Bennett and Mitch Daniels. This blog is in no way meant to be an apologist for the unions (there are clearly problems there) but the union leadership has started to stand up to the mistruths and procedural wrangling of this administration. After all, if a union won't stand up for it's members, then what's if for? The other thing this points out of course is how through one side of the mouth folks will talk about the need for "data", they'll also, through the other side, advance policies that have no support in data or educational research. Once again, what's most exciting is that the people are waking up to the hypocrisy and speaking out.
