Go to my series on the War on Teachers, and see how they took out the real voices of LEARNING, and then over 20 years defunded public education to cause catastrophic failure... so they could 'reform" public education into private ed

Finally, the process for the utter demolition of our public schools is in the media. But we have yet to hear how this process took out NYC schools, as NYC is the largest school system in America. Watch this Grassroots video and see how it was done
