  1. What I LOVE:
    1. Reclaiming the word “reform”
    2. Including parents in bargaining. What a gutsy move, and yet so incredibly important. So few people are covered under collective bargaining agreements today that when the media latches on to bargaining in any context it is usually conveyed as “greedy people protecting their defined benefit pensions, a gift that most americans lack.” For teachers, the strains of larger class sizes, purchasing their own supplies, using their own time to tutor, grade papers and write lesson plans are both a matter of economics and creating classrooms that thrive.
