Mitt Romney At Education Nation: Unions Aren't About Education

During his appearance at NBC’s Education Nation, GOP presidential nominee MItt Romney said, “Education is about teachers, great leadership and parents, and the union has a different objective.” Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association, fired back. “Romney’s ‘us vs. them’ platform is a blast from the past,” Van Roekel said. “Attacking educators and unions like NEA with gross exaggerations about political muscle and with divide-and-conquer tactics is a distraction from having to confront the real questions about his education record as governor of Massachusetts.” Source: The Huffington Post
