With rampant budget cuts across the country hitting schools especially hard, not to mention the bruising fights in Wisconsin early this year that specifically targeted teachers' unions, it sure feels like education is taking it on the chin wherever you look. As an educator myself, I tend to take it understandably personally when people talk with absolute authority about a) how ineffectual teachers are and b) how overpaid teachers are. As Chris Hedges argues, the current undermining of our education system is part a process that's been going on for awhile now, and is being driven by a very specific agenda. Some definite food for thought.
