Can't we all just get along?

Our schools would be in much better shape if more people shared the attitudes of Memphis Education Association Executive Director Ken Foster and Memphis City Schools Deputy Superintendent Irving Hamer, Jr.

The two paired up for this article in the Christian Science Monitor, in which they agree that "the tone of the national (education) conversation is serving as a wedge, further widening the historical rift between labor and management. Such strife can only harm efforts at meaningful reform."

The pair write honestly about their goals for public schools, their points of agreement and disageement, and the need for open, honest collaboration to improve our schools.
