“A time comes when silence is betrayal.” These words of Martin Luther King gained immortality in his 1967 speech against the Viet Nam War. In our era, during over a decade of a War on Public Education, thousands of aware–yet afraid, and silent–teachers have contributed to victory after victory for an enemy who is stealing their joy, their livelihood and their pensions. Meanwhile, the theft of our children’s education, and with it, the future of our country, is no less compelling. Let 2014, then, be remembered as the year we found our conscience, and so our voice.
