Teachers' Union Opposed to Wal-Mart;
Another Argument in Favour of Home-Schooling

From Kip Esquire's Blog, A Stitch in Time:

If this is what some teachers are doing outside the classroom...

The 2.7 million-member National Education Association, the biggest U.S. union, and the 1.3 million-member American Federation of Teachers is teaming with the United Food and Commercial Workers in urging shoppers to stay away from the world's largest retailer and buy school supplies elsewhere, a release from the food workers' "Wake-Up Wal-Mart" group said.

The back-to-school season is the biggest shopping time for Wal-Mart other than Christmas. The unions held news conferences and rallies across the United States on Wednesday, demanding the company boost its wages, expand health benefits and adhere to child-labor laws.

...then can you imagine what they're doing inside the classroom?

Another good reason to home-school your kids.
