"In the education reform world, for the last 15 years, people have been saying, 'We need a movie, like a big movie, to come along and tell people what is really going on," said Joe Williams, the president of Democrats for Education Reform. "Now in one year we've got more than we can handle."
"The Democratic Party, quite bluntly, needs teachers unions to be effective," said Joe Williams, executive director of Democrats for Education Reform. "We can count on teachers unions to send busloads of teachers into swing states at the right times. The relationship between the party and the unions is very long-standing. As a result of all the work the teachers unions were doing for the Democratic Party, party leaders threw their hands up on education."
