Education, Politics

Calling all Teachers! Time to Step Up – Our Champ Is Sidelined!

Just read on Diane Ravitch’s blog that she’s been forced to cancel upcoming appearances due to a blood clot in her leg and walking pneumonia. There is NO ONE fighting more to end privatization and stop the insane education reformers than our 75-year old champion.

It’s up to us to pick up the slack while Diane’s sidelined. Start a blog, get a Twitter account, pester your Facebook friends with the truth about what’s happening in our public schools. Buy a copy of Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public Schools.

In Michissippi, hit Lansing with everything you’ve got. Email One Tough Nerd and his minions, especially Rep. Lisa Lyons. Let them know we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.

Diane Ravitch’s tireless efforts have helped change the conversation about public education. Keep the conversation going.

And while you’re at it, drop by her blog and wish Diane a speedy recovery.
