FairTest to honor Jonathan Kozol with Deborah W. Meier Hero in Education Award

UPDATE: May 20, 2013>>
FairTest ceremony awarding Kozol was a great success - you can help honor Jonathan

The May 9 event honoring Jonathan Kozol was a great success - excellent speeches, fine food, wonderful setting, and great people. You can still honor Jonathan and help FairTest by making a donation in his honor.
