Nancy Bailey reminds us that a decade ago, we were allegedly “Waiting for Superman” to save us, but that was a hoax because the film was propaganda for charter schools and privatization.

Today, as our nation fights a deadly pandemic, we know that the genuine superheroes, the ones who protect our children, are teachers.

Every state faces a budget shortfall because of the pandemic and its effect on the economy.

Projected job losses for teachers are huge.

Bailey advises: Don’t fire our superheroes.

Our children need smaller classes.

Hire more teachers.

How to pay for it?

Raise taxes on those with the greatest income and wealth.
