The Association of Teacher Educators has recruited Chicago professor – and former domestic terrorist – William Ayers to speak at their the 2013 Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia which will be held next month.
William Ayers, a co-founder of the radical Weather Underground domestic terror group, was a key figure during the 2008 presidential campaign due to his Chicago ties to then-Senator Obama.
The organization’s executive director, David Ritchey, confirmed that Ayers would be a keynote speaker at the conference although he admitted that he wasn’t involved in the selection process.
Ritchey added that although Ayers was a controversial figure he had been invited due to his “work in the education field, apart from all the other stuff.”
The website biography makes no specific mention of Ayers’ controversial background, describing him as the “formerly Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.”
The online biography also lists several of Ayers’ books, including Fugitive Days, which chronicles his activities as a radical domestic terrorist in the ’60s.
According to the website, the Association of Teacher Educators is a 90-year-old organization dedicated to “the improvement of teacher education for both school and campus-based teacher educators.”
The theme for the Annual Meeting this year is “Living and Learning across a Lifetime.”

Ayers got the invitation to speak due to his... "work in the education field apart from all the other stuff."

..."apart"....?
You've got to be kidding me!

Let this be a lesson to soon-to-be graduating seniors of America and Springboro.
In life, you will ALWAYS be given a 2nd chance.

After you graduate, it's perfectly OK to spend a few being the leader of an organization hell-bent on destroying Democracy, bombing the crap out of government buildings and engaging police in riots.

At some point along the way you can always remove yourself from fugitive status, make a formal apology, attain several advanced degrees, and then begin a career in teaching.

Although apologetic on the surface, you'll use every opportunity to wedge your consistent, jaded political views into the minds of our nation's teachers, and ultimately the minds of our nation's young people....OUR NATIONS FUTURE.

Dear Mr. Petrey,

Will you communicate to Springboro families and community members if our school teachers plan to support the key note speaker with their attendance at the national conference?

How will this trip for our teachers be funded?

We need to know your thoughts, as our Superintendent of Springboro Schools, as to what value you think our teachers would gain, and exactly what educational value supporting our schools Mission statement, would our teachers bring back into our Springboro students classrooms?

at the BOE meeting presenting his point of views on guns in our schools. This is the same man that made headlines for his racist tweets. From the DDN: "“Certainly, the tweet from Mr. Thomas in which he used a racial slur was enough for me to remove myself from any connection with him. But just today, someone pointed out to me the links on the Tea Party page. I do not want to have my name associated with this organization,” Oda said in an e-mail on Tuesday, April 6."

This same article states the man (quite friendly with Kelly Kohls) also, "On April 1, Thomas regained visitation rights to the son he lost as a result of a domestic civil protection order filed by the boy’s mother in December 2009, court records show.

A magistrate in Warren County Common Pleas Court stopped Thomas’ contact with Turner and their son, after she said the boy returned from visits with Thomas with bruises, according to court records.

YOU WANT TO WORRY ABOUT A SPEAKER AT A PRESENTATION? HOW ABOUT WORRY ABOUT THE COMPANY THE BOE MAJORITY KEEPS???????
