Jesse Hagopian brought a rate moment of truth to the corporate-dominated Education Nation show when he spoke on behalf of his colleagues at Garfield High in Seattle. He instantly became the voice and face of the movement to stop pointless and punitive high-stakes testing. Imagine: a real classroom teacher sitting among the CEOs and governors. They speak Reformy platitudes, he is the voice of experience.

This is an interview that Jesse gave to Jaisal Noor about his vision of the movement that is now building in state after state, to protect children from the predatory practices endorsed by the governors and CEOs at Education Nation.
