Mike Deshotels writes a terrific blog about education in Louisiana. He attended my debate with Chas Roemer, and here is his account. He also writes about the teacher town hall, where I urged teachers to become politically active.

He urged teachers to join the Network for Public Education. They should also join the “Defenders of Public Education.”

It is not teachers alone who are at risk in Louisiana. It is the very principle of public education as a founding pillar of our democracy.
