AFT Celebrates National Charter Schools Week

Via AFT John, the American Federation of Teachers has a release out today recognizing National Charter Schools Week and pledging to "intensify its national effort to organize charter schools."

The national union also announced the formation of a charter school teacher network, called the Alliance of Charter Teachers and Staff. Since everything in Washington has to have an acronym, it will henceforth be known as ACTS.

This is getting interesting, ainah?

The question of "what do charter school teachers need to be successful" is so much more interesting than "what can we do to kill charter schools at every turn" isn't it?
