Special guest speaker Dr. Steven Strauss, a practicing Baltimore-area neurologist and former professor of neurology for the University of Maryland. He is also a Ph.D. linguistics scholar and frequent writer and speaker on education issues, to which he brings an anti-capitalist analysis and the passion of a parent with two children educated in public schools. A participant in the 2011 Save Our Schools protest in Washington, D.C. against corporatization and high-stakes testing, Dr. Strauss is also the author of Silent "E" Speaks Out, a political critique of "neo-phonics." Sponsored by Freedom Socialist Party. For more information call 206-722-2453 or email FSPseattle@mindspring.com. The meeting place is wheelchair accessible.
