    The healing begins - or does it?

    from the day after the recall election: June 6, 2012

    We were all rather subdued at work today. The cubicles that are usually full of laughter and  happy talk were quiet, with only the minimal phone calls taking place. We huddled in our own little cloth-covered squares, finalized report cards, and mourned the loss of the recall election.
    It was our loss as much as anyone’s. We public school teachers were the central target of the Governor’s attack on collective bargaining. We were not the only group that got hit hard when Act 10 passed, but we were the most noticeable and the easiest target for the general public. We public school teachers (now perceived as public enemies) joined forces with progressives all over the state of Wisconsin to campaign for Tom Barrett to replace Scott Walker.

    Those who can - teach.

    There's an old saying that goes something like this. Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. I'll tell you the truth: Those who can, teach. Those who are really, really capable also write about teaching.

    Enjoy the whole story here, at the new Compost Happens. Remember to change your bookmarks!
