Obama Flips Off Teachers

President-elect Obama's nomination of his unqualified basketball buddy, Arne Duncan, sends one very clear message to American educators. "Not a single one of you or the leaders you respect is qualified to run our nation's public schools."

A basketball metaphor might be timely.

Wake up teachers! If we don't start playing offense, teaching in the United States will enjoy the same level of joy, purpose and security as working on a General Motors assembly line.

Apparently, "Change you can believe in," stops at the schoolhouse metal detector.
