You know teachers’ unions are in trouble…

January 26th, 2010

…when even a liberal like Roger Ebert is pointing out how evil they are:

Decades of research and test data indicate that the primary factor determining a school performance is not its budget, buy viagra sildenafil physical plant, viagra curriculum, student population or the income level of its district. It is teaching. The most powerful opponents to better teaching are the teachers’ unions. I am a lifelong supporter of unions. But “Waiting for Superman” makes this an inescapable conclusion. A union that protects incompetent and even dangerous teachers is an obscenity.

    Funny how your liberal audience puts their two cents in for just about everything here… but they’re strangely silent on this one. Hmmmm.

    Yeah, they’re almost as quiet as conservatives when Ebert was criticizing the Iraq war.
