Mark Naison is a professor of African-American Studies at Fordham University, and an activist FOR public education and against the "reform" movement.
Earlier this week he established a Facebook Group called Badass Teachers Association (and yes, I have joined).
News of this has spread like wildfire.
Today is the 6th day of the group's existence. It is already over 5,800 members as of 8 AM EDT.
It is one more example of pushback at how the so-called "reform" movement is destroying public education.
You will certainly want to take a look, to see the posts being put up by members.
Who knows, maybe you too are a Badass Teacher! You refuse to be intimidated, you will stand up for your school and your students.
In which case you should join us.
