Know the truth, from former Ass't Edation Sec'y, Ravitch: 'as a rule, if a person shares any part of Betsy DeVos’s agenda, chances are he/she is not a progressive. Progressives usually support public schools governed democraticly; progressives believe that teachers should have the right to bargain collectively & to seek better funding & good working conditions for the students & staff; progressives think that all teachers should be well educated & certified; progressives believe that educators, students, & families should be treated with respect and that civil rights law should be enforced; progressives work towards a society that is fair & just to all its citizens. Progressives do not defend racial segregation. Read Peter Greene’s response to Conor Williams’s loopy claim that 'progressives should defend charter schools even though they are segregated & non-union.' That's false!
