For too long, I’ve been reading uninformed newspaper articles (or, even worse, the comments on those articles) and have threatened to start a blog focused on teaching and education policy within Oregon.  This is that blog.  For full disclosure, I am a practicing public school teacher, a union activist and strongly believe that public schools play a vital role in protecting and enhancing our democracy.  The posts on this blog in no way reflect the opinions of my employer or the Oregon Education Association.

I plan on remaining anonymous as I write in order to protect my ability to speak freely.  All blogging is done during non-school hours using my own personal computer.  If I’ve learned anything from Beaverton teacher Jason Levin’s recent run in with the right wingers, it’s that public employees should not have even the slightest tinge of impropriety when speaking out on political topics.

I hope you enjoy what I have to say and find my work to be informative.  Tips are always accepted by email or tweet.
