Connecticut is waking up today!
Senator Robert Kennedy said "It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and their bodies to the task." I have been blessed with a career that allows me to teach children and teachers. It's never been easy, it takes a great deal of work to teach well, but the rewards at the end of the day make it all worth while for me. Like a drummer all I really want to do is teach. When I first started teaching children were not data, they were children. Teachers were not data, they were teachers. Today Education reformers in Connecticut have decided they can balance the budget on the backs of our poorest children and our poorest public schools. Today I can't bang on my teaching drum. Today at 5:PM in Hartford at the Capital I am committing my mind and my body to the task of marching for children, parents, teachers and our public schools.
Banging on the drum of justice with my Moral Monday brothers and sisters,
Jesse The Walking Man Turner
