Mike Thomas: Florida Teacher Unions Contemplate Hari Kari

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Mike Thomas of the Orlando Sentinel points out the beyond-the-pale hypocrisy of Florida’s teacher unions in standing against Florida’s Race to the Top application.  Money quote:

If the Florida Education Association manages to block this grant, the political fallout will be brutal. Florida has an 11.5 percent unemployment rate. It is losing more jobs than any state in the union.

Given all that, imagine the headline: Teachers’ union blocks $700 million for schools.

Followed by the headline: Schools face $515 million shortfall.
