    Top issue of 2012:

    Continuing failures of the policies of privatization and test-driven education. We simply can’t afford another decade like the one we just had.

  • David Stieber says:

    1) Pro Privatization groups that this organization promotes that actually do not help kids at all.

    2) The lies of charter schools (they perform no better & often worse than public school)

    3) The over testing of our students. Increasing testing makes students not excited for school.
