Please, everyone, click on TAG's tweet link to read a very interesting article. If even half of it is credible, which I believe that it is, our problem is much bigger than who's at the helm of the PFT. Weingarten leading the AFT is like the fox guarding the henhouse. Maybe we should advocate for Karen (Chicago Teacher's Union) to run against Weingarten. Hopefully the next AFT election will be better publicized than the last PFT election (which none of the teachers in my building knew took place until AFTER the results were revealed.) When is the next PFT election? Rest assured, I will NOT be as complacent next time around.

I read the article. It's very interesting, to say the least.
