Obama at the NEA Conference

As a former public school teacher, I hear a lot of truth in Barack Obama's address at this year's National Education Assocation convention in Philadelphia. Too many teachers feel fatigued and disrespected because society is eager to place the blame for our meager public schools squarely on the shoulders of classroom teachers. In truth, if we are to improve our schools, then entire communities have to step up to the challenge.
