Here is a great way to stop the attacks on teachers and stop the privatization of public education: elect teachers to fight for kids and public schools.
Marie Corfield is a teacher who is running for the New Jersy Assembly. She already has had one face-to-face confrontation with Governor Chris Christie. I hope she has the chance to have many more. The Christie administration is determined to give public funds to profiteers and entrepreneurs to run schools.
New Jersey has great public schools. They regularly rank #2 or 3# of all states on NAEP. New Jersey also has districts that are intensely poor and segregated. Profiteers won't cure their deep economic ills.
Corfield is in a tight race. She has a good chance to win.
