January 28, 2016 Education Town Hall

FriedrichsAre you following Friedrichs vs. California Teachers Union, the case in front of the U.S. Supreme Court which some think could mean the end of unions? It’s essential that  all who are interested in education or labor or the future direction of our country stay on top of this. Marla Kilfoyle, General Manager of BadAss Teachers Association, has been sitting in on oral arguments and closely following the case. She joins the Education Town Hall to help us all catch up and provide background.

“Transcending Resistance, Igniting Revolution,” the national United Opt Out Conference, is only a few weeks away. Denisha Jones, Professor at Howard University and national organizer with UOO (as well as BATs and Save Our Schools), brings the latest on the conference scheduled for February 26 – 28 in Philadelphia. Second half of the program.

Apologies to Dr. Yohuru Williams and all who hoped to hear him. He was scheduled to join this segment but unable to join the show this month, due to technical difficulties in DC.
