Today, Diane Ravitch posted her support for the campaign of Jason France, AKA Crazy Crawfish, for District 6 seat on the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Dr. Ravitch is well known for her expertise and outspoken voice in support of public education. No doubt there will be opposition to Jason's efforts by out-of-state special interests and political operatives who want to privatize public education and place it in the hands of corporate interests. This blog will follow those efforts and try to keep you informed you won't be fooled by the rhetoric or the $$$$$$!
You can help Jason by donating to his campaign. He has vowed not to take donations from special interests. Most importantly, you can spread the word among voters in District 6 because this still is The United States of America and voters elect their representatives.
