Chicago teachers union head Karen Lewis speaking at a Social Justice Conference. She calls out Arne Duncan, Obama's Secretary of Eduction, on his lisp

and then laughs and jokes about her weed smoking while in college

This is leadership for teachers?
No wonder Chicago schoo system is failing.
Actually feel sorry for Rahm!!

And Obama kept his mouth shut during this whole debaucle in chicago because the teachers were striking against his education policy of merit pay

and a UNION was striking

It's pathetic!

We need LEADERSHIP in this country, no some limp wimpy president
