Let’s Review

Here are three things we previously learned that were reinforced for us this week:

1) Most people know nothing, or very little, about Common Core. (February 2014 and last Monday, about a poll of California voters)

2) Compiling teacher union campaign spending is tricky, since “member communications” is a gray area. (October 2010, last Friday, and yesterday, about a Pennsylvania State Education Association election mailer sent to the spouse of a PSEA member)

3) Despite the establishment of “new financial safeguards,” embezzlement by local union officers continues to occur. (March 2014, last Friday in New Jersey, and today in New York)
