So there are more and more voices calling for teacher voice to be heard by the public and policy-makers. The latest is blogger K Michelle McGlothen in an ASCD post today. I’m heartened to hear more people urging this. What troubles me, though, is that just us advocates saying it should happen doesn’t necessarily make it happen. So I’m looking for fresh ideas for how to get our voices out there. Peter Smagorinsky suggests creating a relationship with a local news reporter, who can then feature teacher stories that we gather. I’m trying that here in Chicago — without success so far. Other ideas? Talk to me!
