LA Deamin'

The meetings in LA with teachers from a bunch of cities has been quite revealing for the 30-40 people who have been attending. The charter school invasion has been one of the primary topics, along with organizing in the local unions. These are committed teachers, many of them young and their opposition to the ed deformers is an exciting thing to see and be part of. More coming.

In the meantime keep checking the side panel for events in NYC.

We heard some news that there may be a contract coming soon in Washington DC coming where the AFT/Weingarten crew is selling out to Rhee while figuring out a way to make it look like a great victory for the teachers.
