I have not decided how I will vote.

I will not vote for Romney.

How I cast my vote will be decided in the next few weeks.

This teacher has decided:

I am one of the thousands of stunned teachers, and life long Democrats who was amazed by the actions taken by the current Democratic leadership in the war against teachers. I was one of the teachers who was fired, then rehired at Central Falls High School in Rhode Island.

Without warning, bad evaluation, or cold reasoning I was made the pillar and brunt of national jokes and political finger wagging.

The greatest hurt came when this president, on national news, commended the “bravery” of the superintendent when she fired the entire staff of the high school.

Without knowledge or background on the extreme level of poverty, crime, or lack of funding, President Obama called me a bad teacher.

This is the direction of the war against teachers. Along with Arne Duncan and of course the teachings of Rhee I have seen first hand the devastation caused by amateur educational reformers.

Replacement Teaching Fellows from 60 day certificate factories have lasted as little as 24 hours, some I find crying in the bathroom. Promised money disappears into administrative accounts, and the blame for kids that can’t see the light of day for the crushing poverty they live in rests with teachers.

So, for the first time since I walked the blocks for McGovern I will not vote for ta Democratic president.
