The Politics of Education

Some say that education reform in Tennessee is all about politics. To some people it is:

Those opposed to this legislation are saying that the bill is "just about politics." It isn't just about politics, but it is certainly political to the Tennessee Education Association. The TEA, for those who may not know, is the State chapter of the National Education Association, or NEA. The NEA is by far the Democratic Party's largest client union and one of its biggest union political donors. Its union bosses are encouraged to spread the word to members to support Democratic candidates while Democrats dutifully support their client union's right to hold schoolchildren and parents hostage in district after district right across our country.
