  Teacher Strikes Boost Fight for Racial Justice in Schools

First of all, Andrew and other comrades as well, you need to clip extraneous text just as you are reminded in every email.

Secondly, I specifically referred to workers getting involved in political struggles outside their bailiwick. The article above demonstrates that teachers oppose racism in their schools but I am not sure this is a sign that a proletarian socialist party is on the horizon. Teachers in urban public schools surely are confronted by "segregation, underfunding, and the criminalization of the students they teach—problems that hit Black and Latino students hardest." To do their job properly, they have to tackle broader questions to be sure. However, the indication is that the "vanguard" of the teachers nationwide favor Bernie Sanders for President, a logical choice given the state of the class struggle. Making a leap between that and launching a new party does not necessarily follow.
