Obama Backs Teacher Merit Pay, Charter Schools

"We finally have an education president," said Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.4 million-member American Federation of Teachers. "We really embrace the fact that he's talked about both shared responsibility and making sure there is a voice for teachers, something that was totally lacking in the last eight years."

Now he's the "Education" President???
Toooooo bad some of Sasha and Malia's friends WON'T be joining them in "private" school anymore...

Obama Open to Private School Vouchers
By ELIZABETH GREEN, Staff Reporter of the Sun | February 15, 2008

Senator Obama said this week that he is open to supporting private school vouchers if research shows they work.

"I will not allow my predispositions to stand in the way of making sure that our kids can learn," Mr. Obama, who has previously said he opposes vouchers, said in a meeting with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "We're losing several generations of kids, and something has to be done."

TYPICAL OBAMA. I mean, what more could you expect...

Once again, Democrats do the bidding of teacher union thugs. Dick Dirtbag Durbin's kids go to private schools, but he wants to deny D.C. kids the same opportunity. He and the rest of the Democrats. They're as phony and hypocritical as a 3 dollar bill!
