  1. Daun, I would like your permission to share this video & PP presentation with my pre-service teachers. I teach at the University of TN, Knoxville in Special Education. Our state is overrun with “Education Reformers. TN education laws were written by ALEC. TN Dept of Ed is a product of Race to the Top malfeasance, TFA, & The Broad Academy cult. TN General Assembly is 90% Tea Party.
    My hope is to educate our young college grads in an alternative vision for public education and find their inner resistance to unjust paradigms.

      1. Thanks, that would be great. I appreciate it! You can send it to
        Let’s keep in contact. I may want you to present to my students on skype next semester. They need to connect the local changes in Knoxville to a national context.
