BATS- Finding a Teacher Voice

If there is a single contribution that BATS has made in the one year of its existence, it is to show the powers that be that public school teachers- in all their diversity and variety– are not a silent, compliant group who can be demonized, standardized, scripted, deprived of due process, and forced to commit professional malpractice at the expense of the students and families they serve without speaking up, fighting back and ultimately organizing to replace the people responsible for these soul destroying policies. Together, we have found a teacher voice that is loud, but also compassionate and prophetic. Thank you all, for making this possible. It has truly been a collective effort and a labor of love ^0^0^0^
