Obama right, Mathews wrong
Please wipe my recent post, "Obama wrong, Weingarten right," from your memory. I messed up.
I indicated that the plan to fire all the staff at Central Falls High School in Rhode Island barred teachers from reapplying for their jobs. If I had shown the slightest bit of energy in checking this out, I would have discovered that teachers at the school will have that option. So the president is right to support it, and Randi Weingarten is right to criticize it, if she wants to go that way, but I wouldn't if I were her. All I did was confuse the issue. I will try to be more careful next time. Sorry.
