Standing Together for History

by John MacMurray | August 2010

Thank you for the recent John Fea essay ("Those Who Will Not Learn from History," May 2010) on the educational lunacy going on in Texas.

Thank you for the recent John Fea essay (“Those Who Will Not Learn from History,” May 2010) on the educational lunacy going on in Texas. I teach in a public school here in Orange County, and we’re facing some of the same pressures from the same groups as Texas. I shared the article with our union reps and interested co-workers.
