I made this video for the BadAss Teachers Association.
Back in 67, the year I was born, there were some bad ass young folks speaking up all around the streets of America – the song in this video represented the resistance.
Today, those same bad asses are not just kids anymore; they are wiser and stronger. And, they have joined across the generations with so many on this superhighway we call the world wide web.
I am proud to be part of the awakening…
Again, it is about our kids. Teachers, parents, and students across the nation are carrying signs… STOP No Child Left Behind, STOP the Race to the Top, STOP the high stakes testing that is robbing our nation’s children, STOP the corporate pilfering off of our public schools.
“Stop, hey what’s that sound, everybody look what’s going down.”
Don’t just test … Don’t just teach #BeABadAssTeacher
