Sole Redeeming Element of Washington Post Recognizes BATS!

BAT logoValerie Strauss, the Washington Post’s voice of education reason, mentioned the Badass Teachers of America on her blog, The Answer Sheet, today:

Educators who are sick and tired of being blamed for whatever woes exist in the public education system have banded together in a group named to show their disgust and defiance: the Badass Teachers Association.

In the short time that it has existed — it formed last month — the organization has attracted more than 20,000 members on its Facebook Page and, according to its new website, has begun to form state chapters to, among other things, organize resistance to school reform that focuses on using standardized test scores for high-stakes accountability purposes.

Anyone interested in saving America’s public schools is welcome to join  the BATs here or on their Facebook page!
