Fixing Our Schools: Newsweek Versus New York Teacher
Take that, Newsweek.
In the battle to win over the hearts and minds of the American people, teachers' unions would do well to play a little offense.
Newsweek recently devoted a cover story to the topic of education reform, whose headline "The Key to Saving American Education," was nearly obscured by the subtext: "We must fire bad teachers. We must fire bad teachers. We must fire bad teachers."
And now New York Teacher, a biweekly magazine that caters to a readership of over 600,000 teachers, is fighting back with an April cover story that says unions are key. Its amended refrain: "We must give kids a quality education."
So, who's side are you on?
