SocraticGadfly: Gail Collins vs. "Superman"

Gail Collins vs. "Superman"

A good, simple, op-ed takedown of the movie is right here. The best takeaway? Finland, which kicks our butt in education success, has almost totally unionized teachers. So, Obama and other neolibs are either once again unconsciously playing into the hands of wingnuts, or else are deliberately playing footsie with them.

I'll give Preznit Kumbaya the benefit of the doubt on this one.

That said (and no, I didn't keep the link), a Department of Labor study said the average teacher works 7.3 hours a day on weekdays and 2 more total on weekends. So, it ain't that backbreaking, mentally, either.

And, that said, I'll also give Obama the kudo for pushing for a longer school year.
