Much like what happened after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, LA, it seems that the government in Puerto Rico is calling for a reduction in public school funding and implementing new charter school reforms. Due to that impact, the teachers in PR are calling for a national strike to push back against the funding and charter menace. It is unfortunate that individuals in a country that barely has an electric infrastructure that is better than it was before being hit by Hurricane Maria (and lost many more lives than the official count) is going to potentially lose its educational infrastructure as well. Good luck to the teachers!

I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
