Arnold Schwarzenegger made a name for himself as the Terminator when he was a young Hollywood actor. Now as the governor of California, he has become a Terminator of a different kind. Instead of being an unbeatable fighting machine, Schwarzenegger is a fighter in an education battle that is sweeping the nation.

Arnold is one of many politicians firing teachers and privatizing public education systems because of financial issues. In 2009, California fired 16,000 teachers, and in March 2010, California handed out 23,000 pink slips that let teachers know they may not have a job next year.
