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?
