Well, someone needs to ignore politics.

This video features Jonah Edleman, head of Stand for Children, presenting to the Aspen Ideas Institute.  He lays out how he connect the state legislature to strip away pension fairness for teachers (public workers), and how he tricked the media and public into not paying attention.

What does stripping away solid pension rights have to do with kids?  Does the Denver branch of Stand support this kind of action?

Denver teachers, you need to start scrutinizing your union leadership.  Capitulation like this means more standardized tests, less reasons to keep seasoned teachers in our classrooms, and kids lose.
