I was invited to debate a state leader in Baton Rouge on March 14. The leader who accepted was Chas Roemer, president of theBoard of Elementary and Secondary Education. Chas is a strong supporter of Governor Bobby Jindal’s “reforms” of massive privatization through vouchers nd charters and outsourcing students and taxpayer to for-profit corporations.

Chas was educated at Harvard. His father was governor. His sister runs the state charter school association.

Each of us was allotted 15 minutes, followed by Q&A.

Here are the videos.

I thought it was fun.
