…Education Advocates, However Weary
2015 saw passage of the federal ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act, “No Child Left Behind”), so 2016 will be the year of state-level work for educational equity as the new ESSA (“Every Student Succeeds”) legislation is implemented. Be sure to review the Education Town Hall BUS ride of 2015 (December 17, 2015). Our BUS drivers — BadAss Teachers, United Opt Out, and Save Our Schools — share an outline of the work ahead and a state-level tool kit.
We are exploring new podcast/archive options for easier following of radio broadcasts in 2016 and beyond.
