You won't see Teacher Julie Cavanagh and Parent Lydia Bellahcene (A Real-Life "Won't Back Down" Story) on any Education Nation panel. Or on Anderson Cooper, who issued a call for teachers to comment on "Won't Back Down" but only if they are of the E4E type who will not be critical of the film.
Read my follow-up on how I have [so far] been denied a press pass, as I predicted a year ago, to
But I supposedly have entry to the teacher panel today at noon -- will be wearing my MORE tee to counter the see of green e4es.
The parent town hall of Education Nation:Diane Ravitch: Please Don’t Laugh
This is the panel for the parent engagement discussion at Education Nation.
Maybe it is a joke.
Is Diane laughing that Weingart[ner] would agree to be on this joke of a panel?

Just the mispelling should be enough of an insult.
A teacher commented:
More scorn for education nation from Ravitch:Looks like "parent empowerment" is the new deform narrative for turning parents against teachers.
Please read Students Last, who noticed the absence of any real, actual teachers at the New York Times conference on "Schools of Tomorrow."He says there is a rumor that NBC's "Medication Nation" might invite a physician, to add to the panel of pharmaceutical giants.
