It’s Saturday & We’re Still On Strike – District Actions Bring Us To Twilight Zone Territory
by Larry Ferlazzo / 14h
(Note: You can see my previous posts on our strike here ) Our strike has reach Twilight Episode territory. Here’s a report from our union which, as a member of the bargaining team I can attest is accurate (I don’t see anyway to actually link this report to the union source): The District’s behavior over the last week has been erratic. First, the District refused to bargain over the entire weekend

' Daryl Hall and John Oates : Their songs were earworms, their videos cheap and goofy. John Oates’s mustache and Daryl Hall’s mullet are relics of their time. And…for about five years, their crazy streak on the pop charts was comparable to Elvis, the Beatles and the Bee Gees. They were also more cutting-edge than you may realize, essentially inventing their own form of cross-racial new wave after

IndoctriNation: Can We Avoid Our Dystopian Republican Future?
by plthomasedd / 3d
“I guess irony can be pretty ironic sometimes,” Commander Buck Murdock (William Shatner) muses in Airplane 2: The Sequel. I immediately thought of this iconic Shatner scene from the Jerry Zucker-Jim Abrahams-David Zucker film when I saw a brilliant and urgently serious post on Facebook from a former student of mine currently advocating for all […]
The Politics of Reading Proficiency (and Charter Schools)
by plthomasedd / 4d
It seems almost quaint now, except for the racism, but in 2009, Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted “You lie” at Barack Obama. Post-Obama, the issue of political lies intensified dramatically, however, with Donald Trump building his presidential campaign on an extreme practice of lies that was well outside the norm of the sorts of lies […]
Dear Legislators: Your Job Is Funding, Not Dictating, Education

Bully Politics and Political Theater in an Era of Racial Shift
by plthomasedd / 22d
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) recently bullied students about wearing masks as he prepared to give a press conference. DeSantis called wearing masks “Covid theater,” but it seems more likely his petulant behavior is his own political theater since DeSantis immediately turned the embarrassing behavior into a fundraising gimmick. That a sitting governor publicly and […]
