Newsday reports that yesterday's John King forum in Nassau County was more civil than the raucous event held in Suffolk County on Tuesday. However, it should be noted that yesterday's audience was invited according to the report.
Nevertheless, a spirited protest was held outside and one of the people interviewed was our friend Arthur Goldstein, the Chapter Leader at Francis Lewis High School.
See it and read all about it here. Some of the comments are worth reading too.
As for Tuesday, everyone should look at the Port Jefferson Station Teachers' Association's official page and listen to PJSTA President Beth Dimino. It is great to know that union leaders like this exist. This is part of their piece:
"...nothing short of full withdrawal from Race to the Top, the Common Core, and test based evaluations is acceptable. Not waivers for special needs students. Not a three year moratorium. Only a full withdrawal from the entire agenda is acceptable."
