Our friend Diane Ravitch today called for the resignation of New York State Education Commissioner John King. Citing the harm King has done to children and educators, Ravitch is calling on all concerned parents, educators, and citizens of New York State to contact the New York State Board of Regents to demand the resignation of John King. Regent Roger Tilles represents Long Island. Merryl Tisch is the chancellor at large. Tell them how you feel about the harm done to your students, your own children, and your profession.
Here is one teacher’s letter.
