Blaming Teachers as a Political Strategy

I don’t have much time to blog tonight (the Blackhawks game start in 10 minutes).  But I do want to recommend a great post from Laura Clawson of Daily Kos.  The governor of Pennsylvania commissioned a survey to develop a strategy to blame teachers’ unions for the state’s problems.

We see similar attacks in state after state.  Too many American have bought into the myth that unions are a problem.  The forces that want to make money off of public schools have been some of the loudest voices in this campaign.  We need to support public schools, teachers, and unions.  All working people need to stick together, not stab each other in the back.
