Beck & Christie. Busting up the Education Monopoy

The University Guild vs. Glenn Beck - Amity Shlaes, RealClearPolitics

And from the estimable Liz Cheney:
We at Keep America Safe applaud American leaders who are unafraid to tell it like it is and fight for what's right. We would like to call your attention to the following clips of New Jersey governor Chris Christie taking on teachers' unions and explaining why he's fighting for what he believes in. You can watch the clip s here: Christie to teachers' unions: "You punch them, I punch you", Christie says students are trapped by selfish and greedy unions, Christie takes on the press, and Christie talks about teachers' unions and property taxes.
Are you listening America?

More. Storming the School Barricades A new documentary by a 27-year-old filmmaker could change the national debate about public education. One bit:
And so, "after not a lot of digging," she discovered that the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) had paid Acorn, the controversial community organizing group, "half a million dollars for the year." (It cost less to make the film.) Finding out that the teachers union had hired a rent-a-mob to protest on its behalf was "the turn for us in the process."
Yup. The light dawns on the apolitical. Shining the light of truth on the union ugliness.
