Something I have to get off my chest for the sake of transparency:

I cannot get behind a movement that co-ops another movement. Do not piggy back on Occupy Wall Street for your completely unrelated movement. It undermines an important issue and makes it more evident you cannot stand on your own.

Also. I am a public school teacher. I will always be a public school teacher. I think public schools are what make America great and I know they need fixing. However, I cannot support a movement that is a series of veiled attacks on my profession as a public school teacher that offer no meaningful solutions.

It is for these reasons I do not support the Occupy Education tumblr.
