William Ayers at Harvard Book Store
Harvard Book Store welcomes educator and author WILLIAM AYERS for a discussion of his book, "You Can't Fire the Bad Ones!": And 18 Other Myths about Teachers, Teachers' Unions, and Public Education.
About "You Can't Fire the Bad Ones!"
"You Can't Fire the Bad Ones!" overturns common misconceptions about charter schools, school "choice," standardized tests, common core curriculum, and teacher evaluations.
Three distinguished educators, scholars, and activists flip the script on many enduring and popular myths about teachers, teachers' unions, and education that permeate our culture. By unpacking these myths, and underscoring the necessity of strong and vital public schools as a common good, the authors challenge readers—whether parents, community members, policymakers, union activists, or educators themselves—to rethink their assumptions.
