Ed Schultz talks with Sara Ferguson, the Pennsylvania school teacher who volunteered to work without pay when her school district ran out of money. Ferguson was a guest of First Lady Michelle Obama during the State of the Union (Jan 25, 2012).
One of Ed's favorite teachers, Sara Ferguson, is getting more national recognition and we're very excited for her.
A teacher at Columbus Elementary School, Ferguson was among 204 teachers and 64 support staffers that vowed to work for delayed pay when Chester Upland School District outside Philadelphia faced bankruptcy earlier in January.
An entire school district in Southeastern Pennsylvania is flat broke and Gov. Tom Corbett (R-PA) says the state will not give the district the emergency funds it needs. Union leader Linda Cook and teacher Sara Ferguson tell Ed Schultz what needs to be done to save the schools (Jan. 16, 2012).
She will be on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today (“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs weekdays at 4 p.m. on WNBC-TV in New York; check local listings for time and channel in your area).

Ferguson was on The Ed Show January 16, January 17 and January 25, 2012, after she was a guest of First lady Michelle Obama (who will also be on today's "Ellen" show) during the State of the Union address.
Pennsylvania public schools win a round against Republican Governor Tom Corbett's effort to kill off an entire school district, but the fight is far from over. Sara Ferguson, an elementary school math and literacy teacher, and George Walker, a middle school special education teacher, join Ed to talk about their fight to save Chester Upland public schools (Jan. 17, 2012).
Who said there are no heroes out there? Congratulations Sara from The Ed Show!
