Recently I had the pleasure of appearing on Bob Herbert's Op-Ed. TV show on CUNY-TV. We spoke about segregation in our public schools, charter schools, testing, Betsy Devos' visit to NYC, class size, teacher strikes, how the Democratic party needs to reclaim the issue of equitable education, and more.
I'm so grateful to be able to discuss about these issues in depth rather than be limited to a soundbite in the mainstream media. Bob used to have a regular column in the NY Times where he wrote incisively and passionately about many about these issues. Sadly, the Times no longer has anyone on either the editorial staff or op-ed page who focuses on public education with a progressive point of view. Instead, too often we see pieces authored by charter school cheerleaders. Please watch the segment below and let me know what you think! thanks Leonie
