EP 71: Defying Gravity to Lift Up Public Education


Subscribe:


On this week's episode of the Up North Podcast, we talked about how we might be able to re-litigate some of the terrible things that have happened to our public schools and public school teachers over the past 14 years if we elect a progressive Supreme Court Justice on February 21st (primary) and April 4 (general).



Our guests were WEAC (Teacher's Union) President Peggy Wirtz-Olsen and Dr. Julie Underwood, Professor Emerita of Educational Law and Policy Analysis and former Dean of the School of Education at UW-Madison.



We talked about opportunities to undue ACT 10, which took away teachers' ability to collectively bargain, private school vouchers that are bleeding our public schools dry, and education funding formulas that create inequalities throughout the state.



And finally, we talked about Defying Gravity, and how we can no longer accept the political status quo.
