      Governor Kitzhaber and some of our "Democrats" recently expanded access to something called "Connections Academy."  This charter online scheme is essentially a website, and not a very good one.

      Moreover, the chief Republican pushing this has a financial interest (big investor) in its growth.

      I have no patience, none, with Democrats who demonize teachers and public schools.

      Fund the damn schools.  Get rid of poverty and structural injustice.  Allow teachers to do their job.

      And get the f* out of the way.

        are the only ones bashing teachers in Seattle because the Republican Party simply doesn't exist here as a viable force in politics. With the Gates Foundation in your backyard and a host of wealthy contributors across Lake Washington, the Democratic establishment in Seattle has lined up behind the teacher-scapegoating ed reformers for the last four years. However, there is an anti-incumbent wind blowing, and the people of Seattle are poised to ignore the Democratic Party and throw out four members of our ed reformer School Board.

        It is disgraceful to see how much Democratic Party elites have lost touch with the daily reality of what we teachers face in the classroom.  However, this may be the year that the people are with us in Seattle. I may soon start a series of diaries on the School Board race in Seattle because I believe it is of national importance.
