    Excellent points. This explains why Obama spend all of his education points on getting more teachers. It's more money for his union buddies. It always comes back to the money when you're dealing with corrupt politicians. It's time to send the Chicago machine back to Chicago.

    Obama’s Education Plan Means $17 Million in New Union Dues Revenue

    Education turned into a key issue in Wednesday’s first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney.
    Their visions could not have been more divergent and stark.
    Romney called for putting federal education dollars into the “backpack” of the student, empowering parents to pick the educational option that best meets the needs of their child.

    Obama called for hiring 100,000 new teachers, a familiar refrain during his first term in office. A champion of government school bailouts, Obama emphasizes more teachers, as opposed to insisting on more effective teachers, and refuses to endorse the idea of freeing students to choose their own schools.

    While Romney would challenge the failing public education establishment through competition between schools, Obama wants to feed the establishment even more tax dollars. Obama’s call for more teachers is on its surface laudable, but it accomplishes a sinister, political goal: producing more dues revenue for teachers unions, which are close political allies of the president.
