Romney: Teachers just want lower class size so more teachers can be hired

Mitt Romney continues to sound the same tired talking points that the GOP (and some Democrats) have used for years- teachers are great. Teacher unions are the problem. In this video, Romney makes the point that teachers just want lower class size so that more teachers can be hired, with the idea being, of course, that there would be more union members.

No mention that lower class size enables teachers to have more one-on-one opportunities to work with students.

No mention of the problems any teacher is going to have when the number of students in a classroom gets up to 30 or 35 or even more.

Just downsize some teachers and let the ones who are left double up on the students. What an education plan!
