1(Mensaje se repite en Español) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) On January 18th, 19th, and 20th, Sonali Kolhatkar dedicated three segments of her daily morning show Uprising on KPFK - 90.7FM at 8a.m. - to the endemic corruption that continues to be allowed in the running of public education at LAUSD and elsewhere throughout the United States. She focused on the systematic harassment of any teacher that stands against this corruption in defense of honest and rigorous public education for all in a country that is now more segregated than it was pre-Brown vs Board of Education.(Mensaje se repite en Español) (For a national view of public education reform see the end of this blog post) On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, January 18-20 KPFK's Uprising Show with Sonali Kolhatkar will talk about issues of real public education reform that are presently blacked out in the mainstream media. Listen live at 90.7 FM if you are in Los Angeles or podcast at: http://www.kpfk.org/listen-live.html If you want to listen later, the shows will be archived at: http://archive.kpfk.org/parchive/ January 18th show on KPFK: What happens to teachers who stand against LAUSD endemic corruption Public education as LAUSD and UTLA see it are about adapting to failure, rather than positing a pragmatic and viable model that addresses the subjective needs of students, teachers, and their families to insure an environment where learning is not the exception and 50% of teachers do not quit within the first 5 years because of the untenable environment they are required to teach in with no administrative support for either good teaching or the minimal level of discipline it requires..(en español después) KPFK represents the only voice I know of in the greater Los Angeles area with the most powerful transmitter west of the Rockies that is not afraid of speaking truth to power without the corporate agenda that seems bent on the privatization of public education for profit while silencing dissent by dumbing down the literacy necessary to meaningfully exercise the control of power envisioned by our constitution in a manner anticipated by George Orwell's 1984 prescient view of the future we now seem to be living.
