Oaxaca's Gabino Cué again standing up for change: Against SNTE "aviators"

More good news that Governor Gabino Cué is serious about taking on the old powers-that-be in Oaxaca: His government  declared a purge of the state institute of public education, in the hands of Elba Esther Gordillo's SNTE teachers union (the largest in Latin America), with the goal to rid it of the aviadores, literally "aviators," or hundreds or even thousands of "teachers" who appear on the public payroll, yet have never set a foot in a classroom, and are often rather used as shock troops for Gordillo's SNTE and her PANAL party, during election time.

More good news from Oaxaca; may more be on its way.
