Bad Ass Teachers Assn rally demands end to corporate school "reform" agenda

On the 28th of July, the Bad Ass Teachers Association staged a rally of hundreds of teachers, students, and supporters in front of the Dept of Education. They demanded nothing less than an end to high stakes standardized testing, an end to charters schools and privatization, and an end to the sale of student data to corporations.

OK, some of the options on "Filtered HTML" were turned off. Those are back on now, and a test is in "unpublished content". It should be possible to re-edit this article with formatting (rich text, WYSIWYG) now. There is an option to set that up by configuring "Filtered HTML" in admin/site configuration/WYSIWYG profiles. At present though there are more formatting options than the html filter will actually permit, such as underscore.
