Media, Public Education, and U.S. Democracy
I had another opportunity this morning to be part of KFAI's Catalyst program with host Lydia Howell. On the show, Jeff Nygaard, a local media analyst, and I discussed public education in relation to the media. While the conversation covered a number of related topics, I think a key point was raised for education activists. In our day-to-day struggles against charter schools, standardized tests, Teach for America, the Common Core and the rest of the corporate reforms, we need to also challenge the underlying assumptions that drive them.
