So Much to Say and So Little Time (#RedforEd)

My brain is swirling.

I’m participating in Arizona’s RedforEd movement, and it’s been truly eye-opening, on several levels.

I want to share some of my revelations with you, along with some of my thoughts on the whole experience, but I haven’t had the time just yet.

I want to give careful consideration to my words (unlike some of my state representatives, who seem to shoot from the hip).

I want you to have a sense of what it was like to stand united with up to 70,000 people who believe as I do, that public education should be adequately funded, and that it’s not okay for the most vulnerable in our population to be hung out to dry.

I want to articulate what a sea of red really looks like.

I want you to understand that there are individuals and groups who actually want to dismantle public education in my state, and they would likely be happy to do it in your state too, if your state is vulnerable to their mighty influence.

I want to share these thoughts and more, but right now I have to get to school, because today I teach.
