"But charter schools are public schools, they're just not the kinds of public schools that the AFT likes," Allen said. "For the head of an organization that purports to represent teachers by attempting to create fear among them is outrageous and contradictory. She claims that an agenda that promotes school options is anti-public education. The only thing anti-public education is those who oppose educating the public in any way that best suits the needs of its students."
"That's what the teachers unions have become — they're against anything except the status quo, and their language and rhetoric should be rebuffed by every American teacher who cares about their classroom and their kids," Allen concluded.
