When Candidates Talk Education, Media Rarely Go Beyond Buzzwords

(Reposting from GD-P to ED forum to catch the Sunday crowd. Today IS Sunday, isn't it?)


And why should they? All the cash behind this "bipartisan consensus" is on ONE side of the issue.

From Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR):

Best single sentence: "The uncritical repetition of language like “raised expectations,” “overhaul public education” and “accountability” legitimizes the destructive ideas and exclusionary practices being described."
