Black Agenda Report: A Scathing Report on the Obama Education LegacyQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
Bruce Dixon of the Black Agenda Report writes a MUST READ scathing commentary on Arne Duncan and John King. "John King is an arrogant autocrat in a highly public, highly visible position, committed to enforcing a set of massively unpopular policies. There’s a serious political opportunity here to galvanize and make visible a movement of national resistance to the juggernaut of school privatization. The Obama administration is well aware of this, and is transparently seeking to buy time with empty declarations of intent to reduce emphasis on standardized testing. King has never taught in or administered a public school in his life. King started out as a charter school teacher and administrator, and eventually headed a chain of charter schools with exceptionally onerous disciplinary policies.
