Public Education Needs An iFix From Apple

Apple, Inc. CEO Steve Jobs was on to something earlier this year when he asked:

"What kind of person could you get to run a small business
if you told them that when they came in they couldn’t get rid of people
that they thought weren’t any good? . . . I believe that is what is wrong
with our schools in this nation is that they have become unionized in
the worst possible way. This unionization and lifetime employment of
K-12 teachers is off-the-charts crazy. . . ."

A 2003 survey of members of Congress
by The Heritage Foundation found that 41 percent of U.S.
representatives and 46 percent of U.S. senators now send or have sent
at least one of their children to a private school.

An even greater percentage of public school teachers around the country
— especially in urban areas such as New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and
Washington, D.C. — send their own kids to private schools than does the
general public.

Yet, these people are purposefully roadblocking the same choice for ALL Americans by relentlessly opposing school choice initiatives wherever they crop up. All while choosing to opt out of the very public system they shield from competition.

Blatant hypocrisy at work again…
