American Federation of Teachers President on Race to the Top
St. Paul, Minn. — The war of words between Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Education Minnesota, the state's teachers union, over "Race to the Top" funding has been fierce.

AFT President Randi Weingarten joined All Things Considered host Tom Crann in the studio for more reaction to the governor's decision, and the state of teacher's unions today.
