So... you want real news?

How about the truth about public education?

Democracy depends on shared knowledge, and income equality depends on all the people's access to authentic learning experiences... which cannot happen in classes with huge amount of kids.


The NPE was established to tell YOU-- the public-- about what is needed, what is real and true.

Listen to these longtime activists and educators who KNOW WHAT LEARNING LOOKS LIKE, and what is needed to fulfill the Constitution's promise for T HE COMMON GOOD!

The NPE, which (former ass't Secretary of Educaiotn) Dr. Ravitch founded is the other reliable place for FACTS about the war on public schools, and the plot to end an educated citizenry.

The nonprofit advocacy group Network for Public Education, is the BEST place to go if you want FACTS about schools.

Newsletters - Network For Public Educationand this:

Asleep at the Wheel: - Network For Public Education

All citizens who need to know what is afoot in 15,880 separate school systems in 50 states, should read Diane's daily posts, which nail the war on education in America and the world!

This link, will take you to all the articles on charter fraud, at the blog of Diane Ravitch!

This link is to the posts where legislatures are replacing local school boards, with not an educator on board.

Trust me, this is a real, hidden assault on education".get 'em young and keep 'em dumb so you can re-write history, and create 'alternative facts' in this post-truth world. And enrich the corporations that push privatizations(this link is to my series)and sell testing.

Also, if you wish to know how this began...don't miss her book:Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools.

Why does everyone need to hear what Carol and Leonie have to say? Well, this wonderful article " Who should be writing about education and isn't? " looks at how elite media outlets address education. and points out that even in the New Yorker, where the 63% of the 38 articles about medicine were written by doctors, in the meager 17 articles about education; not a single one of them is written by a professional educator, nary a classroom teacher or educational researcher among the authors.

Rose says: " this disparity in authorship, this absence of people closest to the remarkable act of educating, has come to represent for me a much bigger issue having to do with the place of education in our society,
