Tom Luna just accused the IEA of trying to rile up parents over laptops rather than addressing a funding shortfall, quoting out of context a post from the IEA Hotline. Here is the full context of the passage:
Yes, it’s that bad, and it’s easier to get the public riled up about laptops and online classes than contract issues. But parents understand the connections between class sizes and a good school experience for their children. They also know that when teachers have good working conditions and input into their jobs, they are better able to focus on teaching and helping students. It’s up to all of us – educators, parents, administrators, and board members – to help lawmakers realize that stability, cooperation, and a sense of ownership are essential ingredients for successful schools. The Luna plan would lessen them all.
