Via. Memeorandum, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie praises James O'Keefe's new expose, 'Teachers Unions Gone Wild':

Gov. Chris Christie comments on 'teachers unions gone wild'

An excerpt from the transcript, Gov. Christie gives some context on the video:

This is what I’ve been talking about. This is another exhibit as to what I’ve been talking about. The arrogance, the greed, the self-interest, the lack of introspection, the lack of standards.

And it hurts the great teachers just as much as it hurts the kids.

I think that this video makes the distinction better than I ever could. This is their leadership conference where they’re in a hotel, having this leadership conference, singing songs together about kicking the governor in his tool box. I wonder what they mean by that? But I can tell you I sense it would hurt.

  1. I've seen that video. For me, since I was FORCED to join such a union when I was a teaching intern, not only is he right that it's enlightening and enraging, but being a person that wanted to make a difference in people lives, it's also just plain sad and depressing. I know how it hurts the great teachers because they can't get reconition since all must be equal in in god's eye: the union. Problem is equally corrupt and disdainful. There's many reasons why I'll never go back to teaching, but here are two of them that stand out. The corruption that you see in the video. The other, that you don't see but is there, the union placate to the lowest common denominator, mainly the gangs, and let them set the rules in the classroom and if you dare stand up against them, you're slapped with a civil rights violation. Here's another tibit most people won't have a clue about and why these unions are so corrupt. What percentage of union members are actually in classroom teachers? No idea? it's 43%. That means' 57% don't even teach and liberals wonder why our schools are so dysfunctional.
