American Education progressives Finally Fight Back.

American progressives finally fought back against the rising Tea Party style attacks on public education with a major demonstration and teach-in in Washington DC over the past weekend. Major heavy hitters like Diane Ravitch, Linda Darling Hammond and Jonathan Kozal were accompanied by liberal celebs like Matt Damon. A speech by Darling Hammond spoke to me. Here it is accompanied by scenes from the fight-back.
