    I started making political comics for Excellent Education for Everyone (E3), a New Jersey ed reform organization, in 2008. At the time, New Jersey's most powerful lobby, the NJEA, were publishing copious amounts of propaganda and there were very few postings on the web that responded to their deceitful ad campaigns.

A visual commentary on ed reform 
Specifically New Jersey
I started making political comics for Excellent Education  for Everyone (E3), a New Jersey ed reform organization,  in 2008. At the time, New Jersey's most powerful lobby, the NJEA, were publishing copious amounts of propaganda and there were very few postings on the web that responded to their deceitful ad campaigns. Along with many important white pages and op-ed's E3 released the occasional political cartoon to poke fun at and undermine the efforts of the NJEA. Below are my favorite pieces.

Slowly but surely, the Democrats are starting to adopt the Education reform ideas of the Republicans.
New Jersey's per pupil spending at the time of this cartoons posting was the highest in the country.
Faint glimmers of achievment mean nothing unless they have been assessed and evaluated.
In response to New Jersey's bogus testing system. A child can fail the high school exit exam 4 times and still earn the same grade as a student that passes the exam the first time by taking the Special Review Assessment(SRA). A test created for students with special needs, this test is given to those who can't pass the HSPA and has an almost 100% passing rate. With the SRA, the NJEA have been able to promote New Jersey as having the #1 graduation rate in the country even though they are 26th in the nation without the SRA. 
In response to an article about the closing of the achievement-gap in the US education system.
