Speaking of Woodie – go to KEXP.ORG radio station in Seattle RIGHT NOW

Geesh I forgot to say “Right now” is because they are doing a night of Woodie Guthrie celebration it is 10:35 EST where I am on Weds 09/12
O’Hare, it’s very nice to see someone on here sticking up for teachers. I am so sick of these so-called reformers, even though they probably have good intentions and aren’t *completely wrong* about almost everything *on purpose.* (Even though foundation money might be corrupting them.) And they don’t realize how incredibly sexist they seem to those of us who weren’t born yesterday.
What these New Democrat-y types don’t realize is that we’ve never had a separate vote on Arne Duncan or Supt. Deasy. They might get a big surprise if we did. Lots of women vote Dem, as everyone under the effing sun ought to know by now. Sheesh.
Teacher-baiting is a little like throwing around the word “misandry” or lamenting the fact that the fifth amendment lets criminals go free. Sure, in a perfect world the police and prosecutors would never coerce confessions out of innocent people, and women would be continually aware that patriarchy is a terrible system for men, and school administrators would have objective criteria to sanction teachers who had done a bad job despite being provided with all the resources needed to do a good one. Oh, and rich people wouldn’t stack the economic deck so they could capture a disproportionate share of income gains due to productivity increases.
