Our New Podcast Archive Website is Ready!

As promised, we now have a new site for archiving recorded keynote addresses. (This is a separate site from our main website which generates announcements like the one you're receiving here. The announcement of our upcoming January keynote presentation will be coming out shortly.) The new site is: Gillespie Memorial Community Breakfast Podcasts. If this link doesn't work, copy/paste: http://gmcbpodcasts.blogspot.com/.

On the home page you will find our most recent keynote from the December meeting, entitled: "Winners and Losers: The Privatization of Public Ed", featuring Lee Barrios. In the sidebars, you will find various ways to access all our archived recordings, either by date, title, or speaker. Also in the sidebar you will find the option of subscribing to this new website to automatically receive new additions in your inbox, as soon as they're made available. Thanks for your participation and enjoy the new site.

The Privatization of Public Education: Winners & Losers

(Clicking her name will take you to her blog)
Founding Member, Coalition for Public Education; Louisiana state coordinator, Save Our Schools
A retired teacher and advocate for public education, Lee discussed her take on the corporatization of public schools and its effects on both students and teachers, and the forces behind the "education reform movement". She recently lost her bid for a seat on the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) to the incumbent who is in favor of this movement. Anyone who is concerned about children and their education and wants to learn more about the future of public education should listen to this recording of our meeting.
