Bush and Rhee Endorse a Book– Fortunately, Not Mine

April 28, 2014


As I announced on April 27, 2014, my book on key individuals and organizations exploiting public education is now published:
A Chronicle of Echoes: Who’s Who in the Implosion of American Public Education.
Harvard professor and senior fellow at the Hoover Institute Paul Peterson and two others also have a book coming out; it entitled, Teachers versus the Public (nice, huh?). Based upon information from a PR email dated 04-28-14, it is obvious that Petersen’s et al. book aims to prove that teachers (and their unions) are an impediment to publicly-desired “reforms” such as merit pay (i.e., teacher pay based upon student test scores), vouchers and charters.
If only those self-interested teachers were somehow brought into check, then “popular school reform proposals” would be rid of an “obstacle.”
In what Peterson’s et al. PR people seem to believe a selling point, they offer two endorsements for the teacher-blaming book: former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and former DC Chancellor Michelle Rhee.
Well. I am a public school teacher, and I can assure Peterson– and Bush and Rhee– that I intend to be quite the “impediment” to so-called “reforms” designed to privatize public education.
Time to put some of my book, Chronicle of Echoes, to good use.
Here is an excerpt from one of my chapters on Bush and his connection to the Hoover Bush and Rhee Endorse a Book– Fortunately, Not Mine | deutsch29:
