Chicago Teacher: I Need Your Help « Diane Ravitch's blog
Ottway Ducard stashed this in education
Stashed in: Chicago!
What really hurts are the lies and slander. How can the media spin it so well where people truly believe that children mean nothing to the people who have chosen as their life's work to help them succeed. They believe money is what drives teachers and why we aren't working.
But corporate billionaires (or millionaires) and politicians--oh, yes, of course, they are the ones who truly work for the children of our public schools. What bizarro world do we live in? We teachers have done nothing wrong and should not be shamed. I don't think politicians and the corporate elite who are deforming public education can say the same."
