In the fight to reform American schools, former Florida Gov. and outspoken education advocate Jeb Bush on Tuesday took direct aim at labor groups and joined a growing chorus who believe real change must start by loosening the grip of teachers unions.
We need to have a teacher evaluation system that is based on teachers being professionals, not part of some collective trade union bargaining process, said Mr. Bush, chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education Reform, which kicked off its national summit in D.C. on Tuesday.
We have a system to reward teachers thats based on an industrialized, unionized model that is completely inappropriate for the 21st century, Mr. Bush continued. There are incredibly fine teachers that get paid less even though theyre doing the Lords work consistently over time, and there are teachers that are mediocre that get paid more because theyve been there longer.

I do know older teachers who are excellent...but many are not.
Unions protect the bad ones, and that is a fact.
The time-honored method of RINOs everywhere; run to the right to win the nomination, run to the left to win the election, then stay there.
The Ghost of No Child Left Behind. The bush’s One Trick Pony.
No more bush.
No Teachers Union Left Unfunded
No more bush.
Instead of Jeb Bush, let’s just start saying Jeb Romney.
Ask teachers to be professionals??
We know who and what you are, Jeb. Get lost!!
Hey jeb, nobody in PUBLIK SKOOL is doing the “LORD’S work”
ANY GOP member speaking out against public unions won’t hear a “nay” word from me.
My husband's brother is in CA and they couldn't afford the private school, so their kids were in public schools. At a parent's meeting he met someone who told him that the schools try not to put the same kid in a class with a lousy teacher two years in a row (proving that they know who shouldn't be in a classroom). My brother-in-law went home and thought about that, and sure enough, when he thought about his daughter's teachers, it went, good teacher, bad teacher, good teacher, bad teacher. Exactly like what the guy he met at the meeting told him. This is our public school system.
Instead of just bashing teacher unions, Jeb Bush and his father and especially his brother,43, need to start pushing back against the meme that 43 was to blame for the economy. Mike Reagan makes this point and I think it’s vital. We’re into Obama’s second term and now the gloves must come off. The story of Fannie and freddie, the 2007-08 Democrat Congress, the connivings of Barney Frank and Biden with the likes of Angelo Morzzilo. All this needs to come out, and not through mouthpieces but from the source and let H W Bush reveal how the dem Congress screwed the economy in 90 and 91 after the Gulf War. If they don’t the Bushes will be this generation’s Hoover and the Dems will continue to blame them for everything up to and including the Lindbergh Kidnapping.
