The Save Our Schools rally in Washington last Saturday attracted a smaller crowd than anticipated, probably because most teachers know the battle lines fall within the states. The most fascinating thing to come out of it was this video, posted by the libertarian ReasonTV.
The intent was clearly to embarrass public teachers and their supporters, but it's the ReasonTV reporter who gets schooled. Oddly, she doesn't seem to realize it.
My favorite part? The proud look Matt Damon's mother displays when her actor-son eloquently defends teacher seniority policies and attacks the "MBA mentality" driving school reform.
And just for fun, here's Daily Show host Jon Stewart's recorded message from the rally. Turns out he was in Kandahar entertaining the troops when the rally took place, but he sent a message of support. Like Damon, Stewart's mother was a teacher.
