There is a teacher crisis in Indiana. The state doesn't pay teachers. Many new and veteran teachers are leaving the profession and finding more money elsewhere. The state wants to put more guns in schools. Our public schools are losing money to a shady voucher program. Add to that the president's son calling all teachers "loser teachers" and claiming we are all brainwashing our students with our radical ideologies.
I spent 13 years in inside of a public school classroom (2 years in Vermont and 11 years in Indiana). I know the ridiculous amount of energy it takes to teach and do the 9,000 other things that are asked of you. I'm doing my best to create some gear that will help spread awareness in Indiana. I think we all need to keep wearing red and making some noise.
