Romney Blasts Teacher's Union

Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney took his ideas about education reform to a national audience Wednesday when he spoke at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington.

Romney laid out initiatives that he says are improving education in Massachusetts, including more charter schools, greater parental involvement in education, and higher salaries for superior teachers.

Governor Romney also lashed out at teachers' unions, suggesting that they are the main obstacle to better schools.

Joining us to add her thoughts to the discussion is Catherine Boudreau, president of the Massachusetts Teachers' Association.
