UAW President Bob King railed against what he said are right-wing politics that have reduced funding for schools, reduced support services in schools, and left class sizes bulging.
“And then they turn around and they try to vilify teachers for not doing a great job in educating our kids,” King said this morning, speaking before teachers gathered at Cobo Center for the annual meeting of the American Federation of Teachers.
“I believe teachers in America, especially teachers in K-12 education, especially teachers in urban education, you are miracle workers.”
