Teachers union reveals plans to recall MI lawmakers who supported reforms to tenure laws. Offers both sides of the debate. Predictably, the union says legislators want to destroy unions; GOP says union's acting in own best interest instead of students'. Same old refrain. Should ask union, though, if this is best use of their time and energy. Couldn't it be instead spent on figuring out ways to improve education?
