It’s great to have another opportunity to discuss where things are headed with this next wave of privatization. Thanks so much to Brian St. Pierre and the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association for the invitation to participate in tonight’s discussion.
Our third episode of PJSTA Live deals with Ed Reform 2.0. We were joined by two guests, Alison McDowell and Jia Lee. McDowell, a parent and a public education activist, blogs at Wrench in the Gears where she takes a skeptical look at digital curriculum in public schools. Additionally she has been involved in United Opt Out and has presented her findings regarding digital curriculum at various locations across the country. Lee is well known in public education and teacher union circles. She has been a conscientious objector for several years, ran against Michael Mulgrew for UFT President last year, and has been a dedicated member of the Movement of Rank and file Educators. She has worked tirelessly to organize teachers in the fight against school privatization.
