Read  Nebraska's Michael Groene's exchange with a constituent about education, and you will see his hatred for teachers and his grand ego. 'Teachers are lazy and second-rate, and protected by tenure'. As the exchange continues, his hatred grows more intense. People like this want to destroy public education, destroy teaching as a profession, and drag down a great democratic institution that made America great. 'Nebraska has one of the best state school systems in the nation. It does not have vouchers or charters.
