Some conservative political pundits are surprised, if not pleased, that Ann Romney is criticizing teachers unions for standing in the way of education reform.

Gunn, Steve (EAG)Steve Gunn, communications director for the Education Action Group Foundation (EAG), directs OneNewsNow to Mrs. Romney's recent interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, where she says in no uncertain terms that the best way to reform education is to throw out the current system.

"We just found it very refreshing that one of the candidates for first lady stepped out and laid it on the line during an interview with a magazine," Gunn comments.

He points out that most first ladies take up a cause for the betterment of society -- and if Mitt Romney is elected president, the EAG communications director thinks it would be great if the new president's wife were to choose education reform.

"Boy, wouldn't that be something? Most first ladies pick a real safe cause that doesn't upset anybody. Wouldn't that be something to have a first lady out there going toe-to-toe with Randi Weingarten or Dennis Van Roekel, or other union big shots and telling them what it's all about? Yeah, that'd be fun," Gunn decides.

Throughout his campaign, Governor Romney has personally spoken critically of teachers unions and has supported school vouchers.
