Attack on Teachers Is Attack on Students

Aug 17, 2009

“Too much job security” for teachers, that’s what L.A. Times columnist Steve Lopez complained about in an August 2nd column.

Never mind that L.A. Unified just laid off more than 2,000 teachers! Never mind that this means bigger classes and less education for students!

This is the voice of the big bosses – who take trillions from the government, denying the schools their funding.

Teachers are under attack – but the real big attack is on millions of working-class children, whose very future these thieves are stealing.
