Paige Blames It All On Teachers Unions

By Alexander Russo — February 07, 2007 1 min read

Who knew that former EdSec Rod Paige was writing a book? Not I. Who knew it was going to blame pretty much everything on the teachers unions? Again, not I. But apparently that’s what he’s done.

Called The War Against Hope:How Teacher Unions Hurt Children, Hinder Teachers And Endanger Public Education, “offers the inside story of how teacher unions like the National Education Association (NEA) are selfishly shackling our students to a failing education system, while exposing the bullying techniques that are used to obstruct meaningful reform.”

I guess that whole calling the NEA a terrorist organization wasn’t a freakish outburst after all.
