Should all teachers be certified? Charter school leaders say no…

“I wouldn’t want to be the one that tells Gov. Jerry Brown that he can’t teach a government class because he would otherwise have to go back to college,” said Myrna Castrejón, president and CEO of the California Charter Schools Association. I would. Because Jerry Brown is in no way qualified, prepared, certified, or remotely capable of being a teacher. […]

The antidote to Trump’s fascist hate rallies — knocking on doors

In the battle for brains, conversations fight fascism Fear makes people vote conservative. Donald Trump’s unique value proposition to the Republican Party is his shamelessness in giving voice to the fear that white political dominance is fading, a fear that has long guided conservative strategies to maintaining white power while representing fewer and fewer Americans — both in its demographics […]

How Donald Trump can win with 43% of the popular vote

By not impeaching, Democrats are inviting Trump up to destroy the Democratic nominee Yes, presidential national polls more than a year out are meaningless. To be fair, they’re probably about as meaningless as presidential national polls a few weeks before an election that could be decided by the barest margins in the electoral college.

How to tell if you’re suffering from impeachmentphobia

A Democratic Presidency isn’t going to solve the Mitch McConnell problem

The first democratic presidential primary debates took place this past week in Miami, Florida over the course of two nights. Twenty out of twenty three candidates qualified to stand on the debate stage, and ten candidates stood each night (we seriously have to work on pushing some people out of this race).
