Barbara Madeloni explains the progressive campaign she ran to become the President of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, why corporate education is dehumanizing, preparing students for democracy, unions and teacher power, the myths created by the corporate “reform” movements, why poverty is the problem, why corporate models of performance are a bad model for life and education, why unions need to work to create new movements for social, economic and racial justice, connecting unions and parents, taking on high stakes testing regimes and how race is deployed in the education “reform” debate.

On The Fun Half: Rep. Louie Gohmert says Obama is allowing immigrant across borders to make “America blue”, Ben Carson says the Obama Administration is engaging in a “Leninist” plot and your calls and IMs.
