John Kuhn, a Texas superintendent who speaks truth to power, warns that the very existence of public education is under fire by a coalition of the rich & greedy. He is so brilliant & so on target that it is hard to excerpt his speech. Read it in full. If you know anyone in Texas, share it. Send it to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who wants to monetize and privatize the schools. “The voucher movement is about money and adult interests,not about children, not even mostly about parents who want a discount on private school tuition; It’s about the interests of tycoons & political players who are funding school voucher campaigns across our state and nation not because they want to improve schools, but because they want to engineer a cheaper education so their property taxes will go down. They want to hobble teachers’ unions and reduce wages and benefits. They want a piece of the education pie.
