Saw her on Oprah. But politics (politicians) should be kept out of the school systems. It has enough problems with politics within, no less allowing corporations, conglomerates, and politicans to have any control in America's school system.

Good question. Which union? Teachers, auto workers, civil servants, administrators, construction, electricians, metal workers, health care workers?

To lump all unions together is absurd.

The big money that influences and subverts our political process is a problem. At least unions are looking out for their membership.

Yep. If you were ever involved in a union you might understand.
