When the teacher unions, both my NEA and the AFT, did their early no-strings, no demands, endorsement of Hillary Clinton they justified it to the membership, who had no voice in the decision, by saying that Hillary promised we would be in the room when issues of concern to educators were discussed.
I have proof that we were in the room last night.
AFT President posted a selfie on Twitter.
Sometimes it is better to ask someone to take you picture, like we used to.
But if the selfie is evidence that our unions are in the room, it seems to prove that we will be in the room when issues of concern to educators are not discussed.
Which they weren’t last night.
Not a word.
Not a word from Clinton.
Or that creepy guy on the left.
