Looks like he's running after all!
A press release from the Social Equality Educators (SEE) confirms that Jesse Hagopian, MAP boycotter and House of Representatives mic-checker, will be running for Seattle Education Association (SEA) President in the upcoming election. Says Hagopian:
We have a bold vision for educating Seattle’s children. This month marks the one-year anniversary of the announcement by my colleagues at Garfield that they would defend students by refusing to administer the deeply flawed MAP test. That movement galvanized parents, students, and education advocates across the city and around the nation. Today, educators throughout Seattle—many of whom were inspired by our stand for authentic assessment—are organizing to bring this movement for an equitable, high-quality education into our union election.
Mariane Wagner, Dan Troccoli, and a slate of other candidates have also been nominated.
