In this opinion piece, she puts some lovely words into my mouth:
“Shame on you for supporting a movie that sensationalizes locking kids in dark closets as ubiquitous ‘punishment,’ bellowed someone named Stephanie Rivera
When actually I said:
Wouldja look at that? It wasn’t me after all. And if you ask me, I don’t feel like my Tweets were very “venomous” or bully like.
But past the shoving of words into my mouth, she makes some other interesting claims:
Who are they and where did they come from? Responding to a decade of major, transformative changes in public education, The Blob helped organize a new group called Save our Schools (SOS). It masquerades as a parent effort to improve education but only backs reforms that the status quo embraces – more money and lower class size, neither of which has been shown to improve education. [emphasis my own]
SOS chapters across the country have long protested the creation of charter schools, bullying anyone who endorses them and stampeding statehouses to strong-arm legislators, too many of whom irrationally fear this vocal, extremist minority.
I’ll let you all soak that all in and take it as you will.
