The Cutting Edge Of Teacher Quality


Sorry to say, but the mindset is not as unsophisticated as you imply. This type of hyperbolic quote is simply meant to fan the flames of union hatred and teacher antipathy by legitimizing the vilest rhetoric through repetition. These pot shots happen constantly, sometimes in milder forms, but it always degrades the discussion. Nothing more than a cynical game. But you knew that. I give Shankerblog credit for generally elevating the discussion, but it unfortunately might not be enough to stanch the bleeding and reverse the damage to education.
