  •  methinks you are over-reacting (0+ / 0-)

    I was not being insulting.  The problem with the way the questions were phrased is they fall into the frame that is used to discredit meaningful reform on education.

    I apologize if it came across as other than that

    but you will do as you see fit

    I can tell you that the thrust of this particular event is to break out of the way education has been being framed in order to get the voices of teachers and parents included

    I am participating in the way I do because I was asked to.

      because, as old and (sometimes) cynical as I get, I can't give up on what I was taught to believe about my country as a child. The idea that we as a society believe in equal rights for all under the law and equal opportunity for all children is an ideal that, though unattainable, guides my work.

      You are right I over-reacted. Thank you for the time you spend working to make a difference in the lives of the children in your classrooms.

      In solidarity
