"How to Create a Teacher Shortage," uses Kansas as an example. "According to the latter story, the shortage is a matter of supply and demand, with barely a nod to the rhetoric of Michelle Rhee, Campbell Brown, and Bill Gates about our "bad teachers" and "broken system." Or,about the states that banned collective bargaining,or the campaign to eliminate due process rights. Nothing about teachers' disdain for test-based accountability or the the profound disrespect that reformers have showered on teachers, the false accusations of greed and laziness.?"Every day you open the newspaper or turn on the TV, you see or hear some teacher-bashing crap, some politician like Christie saying he wants to punch teachers in the face, some rag like the Post blaming teachers for destroying the lives of children by using the Three Little Pigs as a DO NOW exercise to teach POV and bias.
