Its not about teachers, its about power

Jeff Wood's article in the Scene weakly suggests the TEA teacher's union actually cares about teacher quality and student performance...they do not. They care about maintaining the union's funding and political power.

If Phil Bredesen cares about teacher quality and students he must summon the courage to fight the political power of the union. The union has one overriding objective and that is to preserve the status quo.
