TIME for a change

TIME magazine is once more going about the bashing of teachers. Its forthcoming cover talks about bad apples and how reformers are trying to rid education of them. No link here as TIME does not need free advertising from me. But the Washington Post has a piece about it. You can read that here:

The cover should enrage more than teachers, folks. Parents, students, administrators, school boards, and anyone who thinks education is important ought to be part of the hue and cry about how education is being lambasted by those who throw about false statistics used to scare the unknowing into agreeing with them. Forget the truth. "Truthiness" will serve (and thanks to Stephen Colbert for that term).

Bad apples. Sigh.
