This space explores issues in public education policy, and it advocates for a commitment to and a re-examination of the democratic purposes of schools. If there is some urgency in the message, it is due to the current reform efforts that are based on a radical re-invention of education, now spearheaded by a psychometric blitzkrieg of "metastasizing testing" aimed at dismantling a public education system that took almost 200 years to build.

Help Chalkface Radio Stay on Air
One of the most potent tools of the current education deform movement perpetuated by corporate interests has been the huge amount of money spent on the air war that is demonizing teachers and public education. In order to combat the drumbeat of lies and propaganda around education policy, it is essential that the voices of truth continue to stay on the air. Please publicize this urgent message from Dr. Shaun Johnson in Maryland, who co-hosts one of the few news programs on education through Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc Just by tuning in and listening to Chalkface Radio, you can make a difference!
Since all the "liberal media" don't want anything to do with our message it is essential that @the Chalkface make it commercially. Please push people to the site and just ask them to listen to just one segment. Goal 1000 visits and just listen to one segment of any show. These kinds of numbers will blow the radio management away.
Urgent Action Needed! It seems our only media outlet is through @the Chalkface Radio.
We need to get at least 1000 to listen to just one segment of one show.
