  •  The good thing about this report is that it is (6+ / 0-)

    reader-friendly, and something that can be handed to any parent or community member who is uninformed or worse--- misinformed.  If someone repeats an inaccurate talking point, such as "unions won't fire incompetent teachers," hand them a copy of this and suggest they read it, to see what the real problems are.

    The more we provide easy to remember information and statistics about what is really happening here---each and every time we hear a false talking point from the right---the better off we'll be.

    Keep a copy in your classroom, and refer people to it.

    The good thing about OWS is that I think it is re-energizing people to stand up against the machine that is trying to destroy public institutions that are at the foundation of our democracy.  

    You are not alone--the silent majority is starting to stand up and fight back, I think.
