This story aired on CNN today. A charter school in Baltimore is having incredible success. Thanks, in part, to its dedicated teachers. The teachers at the KIPP Ujima School have even refused pay increases and voluntarily work every other Saturday to help their students be the best they can me.
But now the teachers union in Baltimore is forcing them to take more pay and stop working on the weekends. As a result, the school is being forced to fire 5 teachers and end field trips.
