Rain Or Shine: Strike On

img_6695A couple of weeks before the strike, I was John Snow: I knew nothing.

There are always excuses I can credit a busy mother. But everyone is busy. I simply wish I had paid any attention to events leading up to this strike. I was not clued in.

But I am now.

Beutner has in his employ those responsible for privatizing education in, for instance, New Orleans. Is Beutner attempting to privatize the LA Public schools?

I’d say all arrows point to: YES.

Is this what I want?

OMG: NO.

Do I support the pay raise, smaller class sizes, more nurses, counselors, librarians (our school is lucky to have a fulltime librarian and this should be a given for all schools IMO): A THOUSAND TIMES YES.

If you, like me, were John Snow–you are probably, like me, caught up by now. If not, do a little research. Because A LITTLE research is ALL it takes.

Protest in the rain? Oh heck yes!
