In February, we posted about Steve Jobs's anti-teacher's-union speech at a K-12 education reform conference. "I believe that what is wrong with our schools in this nation is that they have become unionized in the worst possible way," he said a few weeks ago. The education community continues to respond to that speech. Yesterday, in an OpEd News article called "Jobs against Jobs", Dale Hill a 34-year retired education veteran, took issue with Jobs and defended the NEA. He suggests that Jobs stick to making computers and gadgets and leave education to professional educators. Kind of harsh, no? Well, Hill is certainly not alone in his opinion and there are many supporters on the opposite side of the debate as well. A quick google for "Steve Jobs"+NEA reveals the very polarized response Jobs' speech has received from the Webosphere.
