Teachers take to Facebook, blogs to protest, organize

Teachers nationwide are taking to Facebook, YouTube and other Web sites to organize and protest, according to National Board Certified Teacher Anthony Cody. In this blog post, he writes that blogs also have been a powerful way for teachers to speak out against unpopular reforms. The Facebook group Stop Senate Bill 6 -- a group dedicated to stopping Florida's merit-pay bill -- now has more than 20,000 fans, and teachers also are using Facebook to announce a protest and invite other users to attend.
