Anthony Cody: Building the Common Ground

Anthony Cody,  one of the organizers of last summer's SOS march in D.C., shares some tactical advice and raises good questions about movement-building. His latest EdWeek blog piece ("Finding Common Ground to Build the Movement Against High Stakes Tests") should be read as companion piece to Deb Meier's post yesterday on her Bridging Differences blog ("The Left Wing of the Possible"). As a lead up to the Aug. 3-5 Peoples Platform Convention in August, both Cody and Meier express concern over the sectarian tone taken and some tendencies of movement people to confuse friends and foes in arguing for their positions.
