“To hear the billionaire school reformers tell it, class size doesn't matter, resources don't matter, and experienced teachers are standing in the way of success. But when these same people spend five figures to send their kids to private schools, what do they insist on? Small classes, excellent resources and experienced teachers.” -- Brian Jones on Education Nation
Brian is in Portland to promote Sue Mach's play, A Noble Failure which takes on the "reformers" who favor privatizing public education.
