Mitt Romney Does Not Need Your Advice On Education, Teacher: VIDEO
Last May, during one of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's swings through Colorado, a teacher named Cheryl was invited to participate in a round table discussion on a variety of topics, including education.
It did not go well, as Cheryl explains:
When he sat down, one of the first questions he asked was, he said "I understand there is a teacher here today, which one of you is a teacher?"
So, I raised my hand, thinking that's a good thing, he's interested in education, but it wasn't a good thing. I felt like his view was a little old-fashioned and I was surprised by it. He went on to kind of lecture me about schools and how bad they are. He talked bad about the teacher's union. He was talking about the importance of private schools and voucher systems.
At one point, I said to him, "I have an answer for that." And he said, "I didn't ask you a question."
Cheryl also notes in the video AFTER THE JUMP that she feels rich Romney's life experiences have not given him the insight, perspective or perhaps even political interest necessary for relating to small towns and helping solve their problems.
