    And if research shows that charter schools as a whole do worse in comparison with public schools, do you not wonder why editorials such as this continue on with their screed despite such evidence? (See Stanford study)
    Or, do they want you to blithely accept the insipid rant against teacher unions when once again data shows that nearly all of the top states in student performance are overwhelmingly teacher-union states?
    And note how the editorial writers fail to mention that one of the largest banks of information and ideas about successful teaching belongs to the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers.

    And isn't it strange that of the schools which the system ranks as low, the big majority are not union schools. Nary a word in regard to that fact nor an explanation about how they could have fallen so low without the presence of those wicked unions.

    Like a dog returning to its vomit, these editorial writers continue to put out this drivel.
