A Song for Wisconsin, and Workers Everywhere

 Got a note from Jonathon in New York that included an old Pete Seeger tune that he has been sharing during the recent show of support for teachers and workers in Wisconsin, Indiana and the several other states where conservative forces have been trying to gut the unions... Since lots of my AP students also take AP History and Government classes, thought I might post it here where they may see it...




Maybe we all need to revisit history once in awhile to remember how it has been, and how it could be again. Liberty is balanced more on a razor's edge than the divergent limits I spoke of yesterday...
Maybe our students learn a little too much about the Revolutionary war and too little about the 20th century..
