What is behind the attacks on public education and what do they mean for us as parents? Watch Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union break down the corporate ed reform movement and how teachers and parents need to build alliances to fight back and save our schools. Lewis spoke on Saturday to the New York Collective of Radical Educators as their keynote speaker.

“I do this work because I love teaching and learning. I am passionate about teaching and learning. And what’s happening in public schools [today] is neither teaching nor learning.” ~Karen Lewis
