NYT golden boy Will Okun (a Chicago teacher) has moved from prize-winning NYT blogger to full-on op-ed writer with today's NYT opinion piece on the silence thing: "Boy, are our legislators busy. I teach in an overcrowded classroom with
Xeroxed books, no computers and limited supplies in a city where the
black male graduation rate hovers significantly below 50 percent. And
they give us silence? An existing Illinois law already allowed teachers
to start with a moment of silence but did not require it." Go, Will, go!
