The state of education reform and left victories in Maine

Jennifer Berkshire, co-author of A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door, on the state of the education reform movement as Trump and DeVos leave: it’s now mostly about right-wing moves in the states to dismantle public education and to subsidize profit-making and religious schools. And Kate Sykes of DSA and an activist with People First Portland, on how surprise victories on four issues — rent control, a Green New Deal, a $15/hr minimum wage, and a ban on face recognition software — were won.
