Great post at Muckety on widespread influence of Campbell Brown, hubby Dan Senor.

This is why reformers have so much power. Takes money and networking....public school teachers seldom have that.

Brown and Senor take on New York teachers

I tried to post the image of their contacts, but it won't seem to link or embed. Be sure to look at it.

Brown, a former CNN anchor, is the founder of Partnership for Educational Justice, which wants to abolish teacher tenure in New York.

She is also a director of Success Academy Charter Schools, a charter school network that has tangled with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Her husband, Senor, is a former adviser to the Romney campaign and spokesman for the Bush administration’s Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq.

Senor is on the board of StudentsFirstNY, another group that has faced off against the teachers unions. The organization is an affiliate of StudentsFirst, founded by former DC school chancellor Michelle Rhee.

The couple’s school connections overlap in many ways, as illustrated in the interactive Muckety map above. StudentsFirst and Success Academy share funders and board members, including billionaire hedge funder Daniel Loeb.


So Campbell is with Eva Moskowitz

And Senor is with Students First and Michelle Rhee.

I did not know that.

1. Hope someone can figure how to post the image itself here.

I have done those Muckety images before, but they must have changed stuff.

8. Okay now. Starry got a screen cap below, is that what you did?

If not could you share how you did it?

Which reminds me I need an easy to use screen capture program, used to have one, could resize with it.

9. There was an option below the image for 'static image'

click on that, and the image can be copied and pasted like a normal one.

Don't most computers have a screen capture option?

10. Thanks, will try that, never knew what static image meant.

Makes sense though.

I can do screenshots, but the resizing doesn't always work. Irfanview does a good and easy job. I mostly scan and post old pictures for genealogy or to post old post cards I have. I count on easy fixes like Irfanview otherwise. I mean easy.

2. Thanks. I know about him and I don't WANT to look at him.

 

Like both PNAC and ed privatization, he's evil itself.

3. I remember his name was prominent during the invasion of Iraq.

I had forgotten his connection to PNAC. Is that website still hanging around?

4. I took a screencap of the Muckety map.

I have a hard time figuring out how to embed them too.

5. Wow, thanks.

Those connections just boggle my mind. And public school teachers have only their unions which are being systematically dismantled.

Well, teachers can blog.....for at least a small voice.

6. Lots of money to bust unions and public education.

Wall Street and the Republicans couldn't let all that $500 billion a year in education funding just go to waste on the public. The sad thing is how many "liberals" help them to do it.

Sounds like she's gone full stealth wingnut, trading on whatever reputation she's built up at CNN ... we'll see how long she takes to burn through that.

12. Wow missed the MJ piece on her.

I guess I have really not searched her name that much.

I will be keeping watch for sure now.

Thx for the links.
