Here’s a blog post by Joey Starnes, a teacher who goes to Washington to make her voice heard there. And she keeps her blog going, as well, to talk to the world about education. I’m not sure how many people in the general public read such teacher blogs — but at least she’s putting her voice out there and growing accustomed to it.
Imagine what would happen if thousands of teachers descended regularly on D.C. to demand more resources for education. Yes, the Save Our Schools group has done this once. But it will take lots more.
