Ravitch says:" After reading the names of eminent scholars who signed an amicus brief in support of the plaintiff of Vergara v California, I sent a“say it ain’t so” emailto a couple of them...  the responses that I received, reinforced my fears about the continuing corporate reform, anti-teacher public relations campaign.As Jal Mehta explains, teaching is treated like a “semi-profession.” It’s bad enough that school reformers seek to silence our hard-earned insights, as they move us around like chess pieces, in the hopes that they can someday-over-the-rainbow devise a system of rewards and punishments that will transform our schools . It is sadder still that eminent jurists would agree that the non-educators in the Billionaires Boys Club have virtually no burden of proving that their hunches about school improvement would cause more good than harm to poor children of color."
