We urge you to view Ohanian’s video – along with a collection of other inspiring and provocative videos – on the Reclaiming the Conversation on Education website. From their website:
ON MAY 4, 2013, TEACHERS, PARENTS, STUDENTS, SCHOLARS, AND ADMINISTRATORS GATHERED TOGETHER AT BARNARD COLLEGE IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK TO WORK TOWARD THE COMMON GOAL OF RECLAIMING THE CONVERSATION ON EDUCATION. IN THE ONE DAY CONFERENCE, THEY SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH EDUCATIONAL “REFORMS”, IMAGINED EQUITABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVES, BUILT COALITIONS AND SUPPORTED RESISTANCE TO THE STANDARDIZATION, PRIVATIZATION AND CORPORATE TAKE-OVER OF EDUCATION. THESE SERIES OF VIDEO INTERVIEWS TELL THE STORY OF THE EDUCATORS, SCHOLARS, LEADERS, PARENTS, AND ACTIVISTS IN THEIR FIGHT FOR EDUCATION REFORM. WATCH, AND JOIN US IN CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION.
