I know this may seem like small potatoes after the devastating loss in Los Angeles. But it is good news. Two strong supporters of public schools were elected to the school board in Ossining, New York. One is Lisa Rudley, a co-founder of New York State Allies for Public Education, and a leader of the successful Opt Out movement. Her running mate was Diana Lemon, a local civic leader. Both are parents of children in the district schools.
Lisa describes who they are in this letter to the editor, written before the election.
Step by step, district by district, we will take our country back from those who would destroy our public institutions and treat our children as data points.
