When New Orleans became an all charter district
When recess became test prep in high poverty schools throughout the nation and arts, music and sports were pushed aside
When school libraries were closed or became places where students took tests rather than read books
When veteran teachers in NY City became ATR's and were put in "Teacher Jails" in Los Angeles
When the average career of a teacher shrank from 15 years in the 1980's to 5 years now
When Bill Gates funding forced Common Core on an unsuspecting nation without any trials in local schools district
When teachers of color were pushed out of the classroom in urban school districts which were then deluged with teacher temps with 5 weeks training
When rating teachers on the basis of student test scores became the law of the land and students, teachers and families were filled with stress.
