    Sadly, people seem to be sold on seeing the teachers' unions as being TEH evil that is destroying the public school system, so when they object to this situation, it is taken as a huge group of lazy, awful teachers not wanting to be held accountable.  Why and how this nation began to despise and demonize the teaching profession is another phenomenon that I don't understand anymore than how we came to venerate this testing mania.  sigh.

    Organize at the local level, nurture solidarity, persevere through set backs, and remember to celebrate the incremental wins. Yes. We. Can.
