The one Dr. Diane Ravitch was wearing under her suit jacket at this week’s NEA Convention: “Public Schools: It’s a Right, Not a Race." Great coverage of the convention from Stephen Sawchuk at Edweek and Mike Antonucci at Intercepts.
Other highlights: NEA passed a vote of "no confidence" in Race To The Top, though only by a "razor-thin margin," according to Stephen Sawchuk, an atypical culmination. Also, among the 99 business items introduced, one posted by the California Delegation was thrown out. Business Item 44 would make a formal request to President Obama to replace Ed. Secretary Arne Duncan with "a person who is aligned with the interests of the NEA, its members, and especially the students it serves."
