With the EYE on the MEDIA'S ROLE in the promotion of a charlatan and possibly a psychopath for president, IT IS TIME  to look at WHO SOLD the public on PRIVITIZATION  by calling it 'choice.' Ravitch asks a CRUCIAL  question
Why is the media so excited about school choice and so indifferent to the defunding of public education?
How did telegenic Campbell Brown, with no experience or background in education, become the face of teacher-bashing, anti-union, anti-public school advocacy? Why is she obsessed with the idea that public schools (but not charter schools or voucher schools) are filled with sexual predators, who prey on “our children” (not hers, actually, because they don’t attend a public school)? Who pays for the attacks on public education and teachers? The linked article digs deep and answers almost all these questions.
