Prisons Or Periscopes: The Battle For Public Education


For Oklahoma educators, the culture wars fanned by the far right are making an already tough job even tougher. Just ask former Norman High School English teacher Summer Boismier, who quit recently after getting in hot water for daring share with her students a QR code to the Brooklyn, NY Public Library – giving them access to books state lawmakers don’t want them to read. Boismier joins us for this week’s Observercast – Prisons or Periscopes: The Battle for Public Education – to discuss what happened to her and what politicians’ meddling in classrooms means for students, parents, educators and all clear-eyed Oklahomans who value public education and critical thinking.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
