Stossel's still waiting

Some of you may remember that ABC's John Stossel ran a report on January 13 called "Stupid in America". I gave my observations at the time and yesterday learned that Mr. Stossel is still waiting for the teacher's union to make good on their invitation.

Randi Weingarten, head of New York City's union, took the microphone and hollered, "Just teach for a week!" She said I could select from many schools. "We got high schools, we got elementary schools, we got junior high schools!"

I accepted.

Well, it's sure looking like they don't really want him to teach in a normal classroom. Read his report here. That's a pity. If they really wanted to make the case for additional help, having a national forum like Stossel's would surely have been a great place to make their point.
