Marquette High and the Domestic Terrorists

Belling broke the story; BadgerBlogger amplified a bit.

The Milwaukee based pro-teachers union/ education activist group Rethinking Schools, is holding a fund raiser for their 25th anniversary. All well and good, but do you know who they have invited to be their keynote speaker? Yeah, that guy pictured on the right, unrepentant terrorist, founder of the Weather Underground, William Ayers.

So, of course, one is inspired to look at the "about us" page of Rethinking Schools.

No surprise that Mike Trokan is on the list; he and/or his family have been Lefty agitators for years.  Lots of years.  And for some reason, the Hispanic school on Fratney has a slug of folks on the masthead.

But the real shocker:

Terry Burant - Terry Burant teaches chemistry and environmental science at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and also teaches graduate courses in curriculum studies and undergraduate teacher education courses at Marquette University.

Louie 'the Atom' was a church musician, too.  That was as controversial as he ever got.
