Congratulations to my Teach Plus Colleague Shelli Shadday on advocating on behalf of highly-effective teachers on Chicago Tonight. My favorite quotation came to her response to the union’s “fiery” rhetoric and whether it was fueling the distrust between the community and the district:

I think the Union has come out and brought communities together in a way we haven’t seen communities come together in a really long time. And its amazing to see parents and students come together to say, “I want my school! Don’t close my place of education. My safe space that I would rather stay at even when I am sick.”
