Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers

Bloggers, activists and brothers Mike and Fred Klonsky get together each week, often with special guests in studio and from around the country, to discuss current topics involving politics, education and social justice "from the Left side of the plate." The topics covered may be local, national or international but always with a Chicago sensibility and perspective.

This week Mike and Fred Klonsky spend the hour with Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Jennings Lewis. We talk about our experiences in the classroom, education and union politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Governor Bruce Rauner and the budget mess in Springfield. Karen Lewis talks about who has influenced her education thinking, the nature of social justice unionism and the relationship between the local and national unions. Lewis talks about the business model and student evaluation the Teach for America. We hear from the band, Jackass Magnets.
