I recently talked to my old professor and mentor Art Pearl. Art has been a political activist, writer and teacher for over four decades. Now it his 80's. he is still teaching, writing and acting on his beliefs. He talked to me about the attack on public schools, unions and the need for democratic education. In this post, I am going to use our discussion as a springboard to expand my ideas about the the current attack on public education, unions, and unions representing teachers. It is time to put the "public" back in public education!
