Who is bashing public schools…

Stan Karp – Not Waiting for Superman: Who’s Bashing Teachers and Public Schools, and What We Can Do About It, Dec. 10, 2010. from pdxjustice Media Productions on Vimeo.

Excellent video clip of Stan Karp, an education activist, gave this discussion up in Portland, Oregon.  Stan discusses the question: “Who is Bashing Teachers and Public Schools, and What We Can Do About It.”  Stan’s answer: “far too many people are doing this and doing a lot of damage.”  I encourage people to watch this as it was really good.

Stan, as I learned from the video was a teacher in Paterson, NJ for 30 years, so he knows what he speaks of. He makes references to Chris Christie, Michelle Rhee, and the Waiting for Superman anti-teacher propaganda movie. He also speaks about Oprah, Mark Zuckerberg and others such as hedge funds who have a goal of bursting the dam of public money that goes to schools so that it can go to the private hedge fund industry.
