I just now had the chance to listen to your podcast in its entirety. My jaw did hit the floor… That was something to hear a union leader [George Parker] talk about the school system as a competitive marketplace. Considering Parker’s context, his comments about charters and NCLB were (at least to me) mind-blowing. Wonderful questions, and great journalism.
