“Time Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs defended an article critiquing teachers’ unions, saying that “the people who are most upset by bad teachers are good teachers.”
The article, which bears the cover title “Rotten Apples: It’s Nearly Impossible to Fire a Bad Teacher,” prompted outrage from teachers unions and protesters who said it insults all teachers.
“If you’re a great third grade teacher and you’ve brought your class along and lit them on fire with the love of learning, and then you turn them over to an ineffective teacher and you watch that be lost,” Gibbs said on Thursday’s Morning Joe. “That is heartbreaking.”
