Gee, if this story is true, I have to start giving the American Federation for Teachers national leadership slightly less of a hard time.
My favorite part is the Students First spokesperson whining about "poisonous discourse". When they engage in it, you see, it's for the children and therefore okay. But when unions do it (and what is poisonous is apparently telling the truth), it's mean. I find this a bit rich coming from an organization headed by someone who thinks it's okay to mock those who disagree with you by offensively imitating them to Newsweek and firing people on camera.
And you know, if Michelle Rhee doesn't like what her opponents have to say, she can just duct tape all of our mouths shut.
