He is saying, all those selfish (union) teachers with their ten-year-old cars and hundreds of dollars in their bank accounts need to stop thinking only about themselves and to start caring about children. Bush first thinks teachers only became so because they could not do anything else and then all they do is sit around all day with their feet up planning their summers.
Does the A-F school grading policy address poverty? No, it just shows what schools are in neighborhoods mired with poverty and what schools aren’t. Does merit pay address poverty? No, it just assures our best teachers will never want to work at our neediest schools. Do charter schools help students who live in poverty? No, studies show despite huge advantages, kids that attend them as a group lag behind their public school peers. Do vouchers mitigate poverty? No, there is no study that points to kids who attend private schools with vouchers having better education outcomes. How has Bennett and for that matter Florida addressed poverty again? I mean other than to ignore it and to put additional roadblocks in the way of kids who live in poverty.
