Odd that, in his letter to the Globe editor (6/30/07), Glenn glosses over the part of the bulk purchasing proposal for teachers’ health insurance through the state Group Insurance Commission that should matter most to teachers.
Here’s that (2) left hanging from the previous post:
Purchasing teachers’ health insurance through the GIC = Better coverage for teachers
Hate to raise that significant (for teachers) and perhaps pesky (for Glenn) fact, but as Allison Fraser and I pointed out in our Globe op-ed:
smaller districts often have just one or two health plans, while GIC offers a dozen.
Not a small matter for the folks who play an important role in how our kids do in school.
