Leonie Haimson has the resources to send her child to a private school. Good for her. And, she is good for the public school children, no matter where her children go to school.
I retired two years ago. While no longer teaching, I still fight for teachers rights, exposing crap I know exists. Not being part of the system doesn't mean I don't care. And, Leonie not having a child in the system doesn't mean she should stop caring or fighting either. She knows vouchers and charter schools won't provide quality education for all children. Public school children and parents need to be grateful for all she has done.
