Quick! Somebody microwave Bill Gates a bag of popcorn!
Fluff up Arne Duncan’s favorite pillow!
Get Chris Christie some Sour Patch Kids!
A lot of Sour Patch Kids!
Because the show is about to begin!
Coming Friday, March 6, I’ll be launching Badass Films.
This new venture is a division of the Badass Teachers Association (BATs). Your humble blogger is a member of the leadership team.
I’ve made 11 very short films about corporate school reform and the grassroots movement that fights against it.
They’re nothing fancy – just something I whipped up with imovie. But I hope they’ll help spread the message and get people up to speed on the damage being done to our school system by standardization and privatization. I also hope to shine a light on some of the amazing people out there – parents, teachers, students, and people of conscience – who are fighting against factory schools with all their might.
I already released this film called “Opt Out of Standardized testing:
Friday I’ll release the remaining 10.
Here are the working titles and a few mock movie posters made by our incredible BAT Meme Team:
