The Educators Revolt: From West Virginia to Milwaukee | Eric Blanc’s “Red State Revolt” Book Tour Comes to MTEA
July 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Educators across the country are rising up against low pay, privatization, and austerity. Join us at the MTEA office on Tuesday, July 16 at 5:30pm for a discussion of the strike wave — from West Virginia, to Washington, to Los Angeles — and its lessons for today’s struggles to defend our schools and public services for all.
Former high school teacher Eric Blanc has been on the ground reporting on this historic upsurge for The Nation, Jacobin, and The Guardian. His new book “Red State Revolt” describes the inspiring story of the teachers’ strike wave and analyzes why it points the way forward for all working people.
