Arguing Vergara on Twitter
I’ve been engaging in an exchange of views on the upcoming Vergara education lawsuit, mainly in dialogue with whoever posts for the plaintiffs, Students Matter, via Twitter. I created a Storify version of the exchange, but found it impossible to embed here on a WordPress-hosted blog site.
Oh well. Here’s the link to the storify version on their website – if you want to see how it all played out. While I disagree with Students Matter on their selection and interpretation of “facts” related to this case, and disagree further regarding their tactics and proposed solutions, I also commend them for engaging in a civil debate via Twitter, without resorting to ad hominem attacks on “bad teachers” or silly clichés about “supporting the status quo.”
I’d be curious to hear other opinions and reactions.
