Gabe Rose of Parent Revolution, Katy Grimes of CalWatchDog– March 6 2012

Martha Montelongo, Ben Boychuk and John Seiler are joined this week by Gabe Rose, assistant executive director of the Los Angeles Parent Revolution, and CalWatchdog.com reporter Katy Grimes.  Gabe brings us up to date on the struggle by parents at Desert Trails Elementary School in Adelanto to convert that failing school to a community-run charter in the face of strong opposition from the California Teachers Association. And Katy discusses the public employee union alliance with Occupy Wall Street, the campaign to clobber California taxpayers, and the California Air Resources Board’s latest insult.
