EDUCATE! ORGANIZE!! MOBILIZE!!!
These are the three pillars on which Ed Notes is founded – providing information on current ed issues, organizing activities around fighting for public education in NYC and beyond and exposing the motives behind the education deformers. We are part of a tiny band of resisters. Nothing will change unless YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE!
the Times should change its motto from “All the News That’s Fit to Print” to “We Shill for Charter Schools" - Alan Singer
In an opinion essay on Sunday, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt continued the newspaper’s campaign “shilling“
for charter schools. Leonhardt, is certainly not an expert on public
education. As a boy he attended the prestigious and expensive Horace
Mann School in Riverdale, New York and then went to Yale. The article,
which pretended to be a scientific report based on the latest data, was
bad reporting and an embarrassment for both the author and the
newspaper. Unfortunately, the Times, which is constantly shilling for charter schools, does not seem to care.... Alan Singer
