  •  Thanks for introducing (5+ / 0-)

    us to Katherine.  A woman who has been with a variety of kids in different ways.  The breadth of experience is a great asset!

    Leaving for church, but glad I had the chance to check in this morning.

      what is important about this effort is that it is not organized from the top down.

      We want support of existing organizations like unions, but we are not taking direction from them.

      It is because of the quality of people like Katherine and the others you will be meeting that this represents something very different.

      We are current and retired educators.

      We are teacher educators in universities and parent groups, including the most important group of charter parents in New York City.

      None of us seek to be "leaders."  All of us are responding to what we see as a real need, and an important moment.

      I am honored to be working with the likes of Katherine.
