Reblogged from Reclaim Reform
I truly admire Peggy Robertson, and you should, too. Why?
As an active teacher she openly admits that it takes parents to stop the dismantling of public education by Corporate Education Reform multinational investors disguised as social reformers attempting to help children.

Here is an excerpt from her “must read and share” article:
“What is happening is evil, cruel and abusive. Refuse the tests and deny the corporations the profit, deny the district, state and federal government your child’s data (which they can share with corporations), deny the publishing companies the opportunity to create more common core products. Without the data, the profit ends and we have an opportunity to reclaim our public schools, our profession. We have an opportunity to do what is right for all children.”
