Dear Commons Community,
Brian Jones, a student in the PhD Program in Urban Education, posted on his blog about the need to support the Chicago Teachers Union tomorrow. See post and link below.
For those who don’t know, it is increasingly likely that the Chicago Teachers Union will go on strike tomorrow. This is really the first time that a teachers union (in this country, at least) has stood up to all of the ed “reform” craziness. All over the country, parents, teachers and students will be wearing red tomorrow (Monday) to show their solidarity with CTU.
There’s lots of great articles out there about this struggle. I link to some of them on my blog: http://brianpjones.tumblr.com/post/31007187166/gotredshirt
