Dr. Sarah Stitzlein, Associate Professor, University of Cincinnati has written an important article about “building support for public education on the heels of Betsy DeVos.”
Dr. Stitzlein, in her commentary, “We are not consumers, but citizens when it comes to schools”, pleads for citizens to support and sustain the public common school as the key institution for preparing citizens for democracy.
