Debbie Rosenow, the fifth-grade teacher at Battle Academy.said this about Kevin Huffman's shosrt visit with teachers:
“I think him meeting with us was great, It’s so refreshing to see that he’s open to hearing our concerns.”
Boy does she have much to learn. These face-to-face meetings with teachers buy Huffman are a facade. He already has his mind made up about what he wants to do...and he is NOT listening at all.
It's a charade.
Huffman wants to end collective bargaining...he just won't say it yet. He's busy trying to create the image that he "cares." He wants longer school days and years, more testing, more charter schools and vouchers. And, he wants to impose merit pay.
Make no mistake. Kevin Huffman is one of those false "reformers" who want to dismantle public education piece by piece, and that's why Bill Haslam hired him.
