Elizabeth Thiel, PPS Teacher and Parent, on PAT/PPS contract struggle

program date: 
Mon, 02/24/2014

Bill Resnick talks with Elizabeth Thiel, a Portland Public School teacher and parent, about recent contract struggles. They talk about why they wanted to go on strike. She says teachers want to maintain and increase their ability to their job well. This means smaller classes, reduced workload, no more wasting money on consultants, more wrap-around services for creating education equity, challenging the standardized testing paradigm that subverts the teacher autonomy.

Elizabeth recently wrote an article for Labor Notes on this too.
