Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio
"I think people from Mexico are now going to feel, 'Hey come on in and we'll get by with it.' But it won't happen in this county. They will still be arrested." -- After arresting 6-year-old suspected illegal immigrant. 
 Diane Ravitch
Isn’t it strange that you never see a group like “Education Reform Now” or “Democrats for Education Reform” or “ConnCAN” or “50StateCANN” advocating for smaller classes or more librarians or a reversal of budget cuts. -- "Big Money Joins Chicago Fight" 
Gary Orfield
"If you have choice without civil rights policies, it stratifies the systems. People who have the most power and information get the best choices." -- New York Times
Experience matters
“Teaching is no different than any other profession — experience matters. Researchers have found that teachers reach peak effectiveness with about seven years of experience. But 80 percent of the teachers hired by D.C. this year will be gone before they get there.” -- Tom Carroll, president of the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future
