Apple CEO Jobs attacks teacher unions

All I can say is It’s about time corporate leaders took on the nation’s education problems at their source. With people like Bill Gates throwing money at the schools, Jobs commented that no amount of technology in the classroom would improve public schools until principals could fire bad teachers.
Jobs went on to say, “I believe that what is wrong with our schools in this nation is that they have become unionized in the worst possible way,” and “This unionization and lifetime employment of K-12 teachers is off-the-charts crazy.”
Finally, a business leader who understands that stifling work rules and an abject lack of competition within and outside of the public schools is at the root of our problems. Hopefully, more of our corporate leaders speak out. As I write this on my Dell Compute, I am disappointed by Michael Dell’s lame reasoning.
