The fight for public education funding is very newsworthy. As a retired teacher and concerned citizen, I worry about our children’s future. It’s a national problem. Wouldn’t we all agree with this quote from New York state teacher union President Dick Iannuzzi: “Cry out with one voice to fight for the future of public education. It’s a fight about celebrating, not demonizing, educators. About supporting quality in higher education, not pathways that lead nowhere. About informative assessments, not the tyranny of obsessive standardized testing. About schools and children, not corporations and billionaires . . . About dreamers and the DREAM Act, not denying access to children and immigrants . . . It’s a fight about the future of public education--and getting it right.”
What’s to quarrel about in that?
