Eliot Spitzer Interview with Randi Weingarten

September 30, 2012

Eliot and Randi talk about Chicago, and how 87% of the population of Chicago Public Schools are living below the poverty line.  It is a short clip, it is only a few minutes but some excellent points are made.

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and author of a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, tells “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer how the concessions won by Chicago public school teachers following a strike that lasted seven school days could set a positive example for education reform.

“The real problem with some of the current so-called reformers is, they take a very simplistic notion that individual teachers can do it all, and then they don’t even listen to what individual teachers or groups of teachers say they need for us to do our jobs,” Weingarten says.
