So vouchers would harm your rights as a teacher? If Romney won election, would the union disappear? I think you’ve overestimated him. Certainly, Obama provides more security to teachers than Romney would have, but then again, Obama and the Democrats have pandered to the teachers’ union for decades. The teachers’ union is not in trouble: education is.
Why is this the case?
I think it goes beyond, Obama, Romney, and Bush with NCLB. We live in a culture of Relativism, religion is on the decline, and the family unit is under attack by Satanic forces. I saw it happening in the early-70’s while in high school: the curriculum was a joke and there was no rigor, no discipline of the mind, and no pause to reflect on values that kept civilization from spinning out of control. Satan sent Nietzsche, Margaret Sanger, and Betty Friedan…then the Sexual Revolution and the Feminist Movement. The rest is history.
Now, when I talk to some parents and they wonder why their child isn’t learning and they, too, grew up with the same watered-down, secular curriculum, and all I can say to myself is, “They just don’t know.”
