 I've been driving across the country this week, but I still have time to read. Here's some goodies from the week.

This is hard to read, but what a sign of the times. The indispensable Mercedes Schneider is on the story.

Kathryn Joyce at Salon has been covering the christianist nationalist school busters like a boss (you should be following her on Twitter), and she went to the Moms For Liberty convention, God bless her.

From Seacoast Online, another mainstream story about why some teachers are getting out. 

Jennifer Berkshire writing for The Forum both dissects the Rufo-style assaults on pub lic schools and diagnoses why the Democrats are so damn useless on the issue.

Pennsylvania has a plan for stemming the teacher exodus. Steven Singer has some questions.

As that whole deal turns radioactive, it's a good time to read this Andy Spears piece that explains what the whole deal is about.
