John Stossel says the teacher’s unions are the reason public schools are failing. After reading his article, you will probably agree with him. Teachers like the ones highlighted in Stossel’s article are the reason we homeschool. Hat tip: Say Anything (Broken link, active February 15, 2006).
Before I started homeschooling I read a book called NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education by Samuel L. Blumenfeld (The NEA is the National Education Association, a presumptuous name for the large teacher union). It really opened my eyes. I’d have to say that it was a stong influence on my decision to homeschool.
Good for John Stossel!
