Seriously, does the Obama team do any fact-checking?
This particular factoid from the SOTU is quite ironic. The Colorado school (grades 6-12) that Obama praised as a model school is one who was granted an exemption from union rules in 2007. They had all teachers re-apply for their jobs and only six made the cut. The school's first graduating class had a graduation rate of 97%. You'd think that his fact-checkers should know that this school goes in direct opposition to Obama's connection with the teachers unions. So, at least one path on the step to student success is the punting of teachers unions. Interesting....
