|Teachers union officials in Nashville are echoing concerns|
raised elsewhere about one of the finalists for
Metro Schools' top job.
My Comment: We need someone who will stand up to the teachers union and not be afraid to get rid of teachers who are standing in the way of reform. Turning around failing schools should be a priority. We need someone who will get the job done. I am afraid that when a candidate stresses a "collaborative approach," that, that is code for, "I want do anything too drastic and won't make the unions mad."
