Something I have been thinking about lately is our (teachers) lack of response from our state or national representatives. When the two most important issues addressed by these two groups are funding and high stakes testing we are obviously under-represented. It seems to me the only way we may get education reform into the national consciousness is to get much better organized.
What if we formed a political party that focuses solely on education reform? I'm not thinking about necessarily making a push for the presidency, just getting out message out. What do you think?
