Campbell Brown, former CNN anchor and mother of two young sons, began to add her voice to the conversation surrounding teacher misconduct in classrooms in late July. Her opinions on the matter, vocalized both online and off, drew the attention of many including the American Federation of Teachers and sparked further debate.
Brown told the New York Times:
“I don’t think it’s fair that we cannot guarantee every child in this country a great education and that, in New York City, in some cases, your child is at risk in some part because of the policies the union endorses,” Ms. Brown said in an interview. “It is impossible to not see that we have a broken system that is in need of change.”
