On Monday, Weingarten said that when people attack teachers unions, they are attacking teachers who stay up late to prepare lessons, spend their own money on school equipment, or spend weekends at debate competitions away from their families.
There is no way around it--that statement is a total lie. Teachers unions, especially at the state and national levels, are political entities, created and sustained by legalized extortion. That they hide behind teachers while going about their political business makes them even more disgusting.
Randi, you're either a liar or a fool--and neither speaks well of you.
