So many of the political prisoners in the Rubber Room filled you in on what is going on – class warfare, with power mongers taking over the schools by falsely accusing dedicated teachers and trashing them. Many of them told me how they explained the corruption to you and held high expectations you would report it. You really let them down. It is hard to see you, with your background not in education, and your unwillingness to report the truth, as anything but an opportunist wanting to cash in on privatization. One sided reporting certainly suggests that. Kudos to Mr. Winerip for seeing through you. If he appeared to be unloading on you, it might be that he has captured the spirit of so many dedicated teachers who have suffered from propaganda such as yours. If you are going to write about reform, you need to balance it with the truths you will find at and When you don’t, it speaks volumes.
