 'The Destroy Public Education Movement  has made extraordinary gains  Atlanta, which has fallen into the clutches of the DPE  because of Teach for America’s success in electing its alumni to the school board, which hired a superintendent commited to the DPE agenda. Atlanta's Ed Johnson compared what is happening to a “comprador regime” serving today’s neocolonialists. In the 19th  century, a comprador was a native servant doing the bidding of his European masters; the new compradors are doing the bidding of billionaires privatizing public education.  ”Chalkbeat reported that Atlanta is one of 7 US cities The City Fund has targeted for  the portfolio district governance model. The city fund was founded in 2018 by two billionaires, John Arnold the former Enron executive who did not go to prison and Reed Hastings the founder and CEO of Netflix.'

Keep reading ULTICAN'S article, to learn the scope of the civic disaster in Atlanta, where DPE is rapidly applying its failed ideas and dismantling public education.The sad part of DPE is that it proclaims lofty goals but eventually has to confront its failures, which are predictable.

and DID YOU KNOW that: ""TFA is the billionaire financed destroy-public-education (DPE) army. TFA teachers are not qualified to be in a classroom. They are new college graduates with no legitimate teacher training nor any academic study of education theory. Originally, TFA was proposed as an emergency corps of teachers for states like West Virginia who were having trouble attracting qualified professional educators. Then billionaires started financing TFA. They pushed through laws defining TFA teachers as "highly qualified" and purchased spurious research claiming TFA teachers were effective. If your child is in a TFA teacher's classroom, they are being cheated out of a professionally delivered education. However, TFA provides the DPE billionaires a group of young ambitious people who suffer from group think bordering on cult like indoctrination."
