Now before you teachers all go rolling your eyes you have to realize what a group of experts the folks at EdSource have assembled. For example, there's Executive Director Trish Williams, whose BA in English Literature qualifies her as a public education expert.
Then there's Deputy Director Mary Perry. She has a journalism degree for the University of Oregon and has been a copywriter and an editor, valuable experience for fixing all that ails the public schools.
We can't forget Brian Edwards and his experience in policy analysis, or Carol Studier who has a degree in Education Policy Analysis and Evaluation. I bet that makes Brian feel inferior at those watercooler discussions.
Scrolling through the rest of the staff qualifications finds nothing more than a bunch of policy analysts and journalists. Oddly enough, no one at EdSource, the experts who say parental involvement isn't that important and who:
