Fixing Our Schools: Newsweek Versus New York Teacher

by Amanda M. Fairbanks

April 23, 2010
Take that, Newsweek.

In the battle to win over the hearts and minds of the American people, teachers' unions would do well to play a little offense.

Newsweek recently devoted a cover story to the topic of education reform, whose headline "The Key to Saving American Education," was nearly obscured by the subtext: "We must fire bad teachers. We must fire bad teachers. We must fire bad teachers."

And now New York Teacher, a biweekly magazine that caters to a readership of over 600,000 teachers, is fighting back with an April cover story that says unions are key. Its amended refrain: "We must give kids a quality education."

So, who's side are you on?
