OP-ED | Legislate Based On Research, Not Hyperbole

by Sarah Darer Littman | March 22, 2013 11:00am

Earlier this week, Rae Ann Knopf of the Connecticut Council for Education Reform wrote an op-ed opposing raised bill SB 1097, urging Connecticut to “stay strong” in support of the so-called Big Six corporate education reform agenda.

OP-ED | An Expensive ‘Gift’ for Taxpayers Without Accountability

A previously mild-mannered friend came into school and said to me and a friend, “YOU KILLED JESUS!” I still remember the anger and hatred on her face, and the utter and complete confusion I felt after her sudden, inexplicable transformation from friend to accuser.

“But I couldn’t have,” I protested, confused and deeply hurt by her words. “I wasn’t even born then!”

Even at the age of eight, in all my innocence and naiveté, I was trying to combat irrational hatred and bigotry with logic and facts.
