Tue, 07/29/2014
Mohammed Omer from Gaza spoke with KBOO on Tuesday night 7/29 around midnight Gaza time.  Planes were flying overhead, naval artillery was firing from the west and tanks firing from the east.  Tens of thousands of Palestinians who followed Israeli orders to evacuate to Gaza City found themselves under fire there as well.  As Mohammed reports, there seems to be a deliberate attempt to cut off all communication to and from Gaza - bombing of cell phone towers, the destruction of the power plant in last night's bombing, and the targeting of journalists.  Mohammed told us that a busload of foreign journalists was seen leaving Gaza today - "always a bad sign", he said, as his phone crackled and cut. 8:06 minutes (7.42 MB)

Portland Teachers Improving Education

program date: 
Mon, 07/28/2014

Bill Resnick continues his conversation with Gwen Sullivan and Elizabeth Thiel of the Portland Association of Teachers. They discuss the importance of teachers' academic freedom to design classes tailored to the needs of their diverse students, as well as the importance of making sure that funding allocated to education is actually spent on classroom learning. They dispel common misconceptions about charter schools and public schools, and describe what professional development should mean, and what it often means in practice. The discussion concludes with the recognition that to improve education we need to end poverty and inequality, and that this will entail teachers coordinating with other unions and other movements.
