WEEKEND QUOTABLES


Donald Trump

Noble Charter School Teachers

“Today, we the Union of Noble Educators are announcing our effort to organize teachers and staff across the @benobleschools!” 
“We are passionate, committed, professional teachers and staff with diverse experiences in the Noble Network of Charter Schools,” they wrote in an open letter signed so far by 140 of more than 800 staffers. “We see our students every day and know they are better served by a lasting staff that can advocate for their schools. To this end, we seek a voice at Noble and beyond.” -- CBS Chicago
Jesse Jackson

Danny Glover
