Travis Spencer: Proper Education Reform
Recently Vermont Education Secretary Rebecca Holcombe came out against standardized test and stated "well educated Vermonters who can thrive in the workplace" is the goal of a Vermont public education. Standardized test are just one of many things we need to remove so our schools and children can thrive, maybe this can begin that dialogue of reform.

Paul Ralston: Single Payer is the Only Campaign Issue
"Single payer" is the buzzword of Vermont's 2014 election. A candidate's pledge to support single payer is the litmus test for some. Big money -- mostly from out-of-state unions -- is flowing into Vermont to support candidates who pass the single payer test.

David Sirota: Journalists On The Government's Blacklist
As states move to hide details of government deals with Wall Street, and as politicians come up with new arguments to defend secrecy, a study released earlier this month revealed that many government information officers block specific journalists they don't like from accessing information. The news comes as 47 federal inspectors general sent a letter to lawmakers criticizing "serious limitations on access to records" that they say have "impeded" their oversight work.

Rob Roper: Poll Shows Vermonters Support Right To Work - For Good Reasons
Over 85 percent of Vermonters agree that employees should have the right to decide, without force or penalty, whether to join or leave a labor union. That number is slightly higher than the national average of 83 percent, according to new polling released in conjunction with National Employee Freedom Week. (500 Vermonters were polled as part of the study.)

Greg Marchildon: What About The Ratepayers?
For far too long, Vermont's utility customers -- that is, all of us -- have been at the mercy of a regulatory system that puts the interests of our state's power companies ahead of ours. The latest example comes by way of a proposed pipeline extension by Vermont Gas Systems (owned by Montreal-based Gaz Metro, which also owns our state's dominant electric company, Green Mountain Power). While the pipeline has stirred a whole host of controversy, none affects all of us more than the way it is financed. With the blessing of our state's regulators, the money -- and the financial risk -- for this $121 million endeavor comes directly from existing gas customers, who will foot the bill for a project that won't be finished for two decades.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: Let's Stand Together
Poll after poll shows that the American people are united in their anger and frustration with the status quo. They sense, correctly, that the deck is stacked against them. While millions of people are working longer hours for lower wages, almost all new income is going to the top 1 percent. While people in the middle class pay their fair share of taxes, multi-national corporations avoid their tax responsibility by running abroad or taking advantage of loopholes. While young people study hard to get a college education, many of them leave school with crippling debts that severely impact their futures.
