    Teachers Fight Back

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     A group of BATs descended upon Washington on Monday, but not the furry, winged kind. Teachers from the Badass Teachers Association, representing at least 38 states, along with parents and students, rallied outside the Department of Education, calling for Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to step down. The group said it was also fighting against Common Core Standards, federal grants that are depending upon students’ test scores and more.

    Filmmaker Jack Paar captured the day of protest and marched alongside his wife, who is a third-grade school teacher. “The mood was good but you could tell the people participating were fed up with the current education problem,” said the Minneapolis resident. “It was a very emotional protest at times, especially when you heard the students and parents speaking.”

    Teachers from all over the United States March at the Department of Education in Washington DC today to take back education control from corporate reformers.
