Marlene's Meltdown | Whaling City

New Bedford hosted a watershed event yesterday in the effort to keep our public schools truly “public.”  The Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center at UMass Dartmouth joined with community groups, teacher’s unions, representatives from academia, and interested citizens to discuss the dangers posed by charter and so-called “Innovation Schools.”  The conference wasn’t simply a gripe session.  It was truly the beginning of a community conversation on ensuring that ALL students have a quality education.
