I had the privilege of being with Bill Ayers for three days last week.

His views on education are something that everyone needs to hear, in my opinion.

Among the various speakers, attendees I spoke with agreed that his presentation was the most compelling.

I didn't know that he had experience teaching Kindergarten, and working with at-risk youth.

I believe his 25 minute talk will be posted to the Internet soon and I'll post a link.

He calls bullshit on the bullshit and sees the big picture.

Not just "teachers- well rested and well paid", but "education, for everyone, is a right".

I never thought I'd ever be "pallin' around with a terrorist!
