Well-read Red: PPS/PAT contracts talks, what they are and aren't about

program date: 
Mon, 11/11/2013
Frann Michel reports on Portland Public School and Portland Association of Teachers contract talks. Teachers are not fighting for wages, so much as work and ultimately learning conditions -- including class size, standardized testing, and prep-time during the day. She shares stories from teachers, students, and parents, exposing the District's false narrative of greedy teachers and austerity. She points out that the K-12 public school system, while not perfect, is not fundamentally broken as such and its problems cannot be traced to organized/unionized teachers, or else wealthier school districts and places like Finland would have comparably bad rates of success. 8:23 minutes (7.68 MB)

Jan Haaken talks with education activist, Bill Ayers, about his recent memoir "Public Enemy: confessions of an American dissident". The book responds in part to critics who used Bill's controversial history as a founding member of the The Weather Underground (radical left revolutionaries who employed sometimes destructive tactics) to smear Barack Obama in the 2008 election.
