California Democrats Blast Efforts to Reform Schools...

...LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-democrats-20130415,0,2919125.story?track=rss


"People can call themselves Democrats for Education Reform it's a free country but if your agenda is to shut teachers and school employees out of the political process and not lift a finger to prevent cuts in education, in my book you're not a reformer, you're not helping education, and you're sure not much of a Democrat," said state Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, a registered Democrat whose office is nonpartisan.




THIS from CA State ED leader!

3. I hope someone is listening to him!

After 30+ years of undermining our schools, it's about time common sense and fairness ruled the day once again.

8. I just LOVE our CA Democrats...

...especially on this issue. It IS about time. And I think it will eventually make a difference...maybe not perfectly, but it will help educators keep public education strong and promote valuing of educators' voices.
