I live in Wisconsin and am seeing our government officials especially our governor walker attack education. He recently stated that you don't need to have a license to teach or even a high school diploma. I don't want to start a political debate here, but rather discuss how we can tell our own story, change the script that is being presented by those outside education. So please join in the last few questions about making education better and presenting a positive message in spite of being attacked.
