“Common Nonsense” Wins Again

Education Nation, 2013:  By Anthony Cody on September 4, 2013 10:57 AM

NBC News will be presenting, for the fourth time, several days of programming focused on education. Education Nation will take to the airwaves from October 6 to 8, broadcasting from the New York Public Library.

NBC News states the purpose of this project in this way:

“Education Nation” seeks to create a thoughtful, well-informed dialogue with policymakers, thought-leaders, educators, parents and the public, in pursuit of the shared goal of providing every American with an opportunity to achieve the best education in the world. These discussions cover the challenges, potential solutions and innovations spanning the education landscape.

Once again educators are asking, “Will the full story be told? Will this news department feature the very real debate over the future of public education?”

Of course, and alas, the answer to his question is:  NO

One Response

  1. The commercial media cannot be trusted to report the truth about the war on public education. They are combatants in that war, but they are gunning for the other side, aiming to plunder what they see as just another source of easy pickings. Their corporate conflict of interest, short-sighted as always, has blinded them to the long-term national interest.
