What if your mission was to "envision a Wisconsin where postsecondary education moves forward through an open exchange of ideas, the careful consideration of research, and a strong focus on the public good?"
However what if you actually tried realizing that mission during the last 4 months of Republican sponsored carpet bombing targeting the concrete ideals on which that mission rests?
This Thursday in a special episode of BustEd Pencils, Jed and Tim talk to two of the warriors from the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
Noel Tomas Radomski: Director and Assciate Researcher
Jason Lee: Outreach Programs Manager
Among many topics, we will ask Noel and Jason to provide a sense of the damage that was done and how WISCAPE will continue to fight back the attack on the essential freedom to learn and focus on the public good.

Don't miss this special episode of BustED Pencils as Jed and Tim talk to Seattle teacher and activist, Jesse Hagopian. The question: Does the Black Lives Matter movement and Opt Out movement belong together? We will talk to Jesse about the current accountability movement and its historical connections to the practice of eugenics driven standardized testing. Are today's tests serving the same purpose as they did 100 years ago—sorting and seperating according to race, class and ethnicity?
Why do they call Dr. Jesse Turner "The Walking Man?" Well maybe it's because in a few days Jesse will begin his 400 mile walk to DC in protest of the standardized, inhumane, corporate, and destructive takeover of public education. Why? Because teachers and children are more than test scores!
