In today’s post, EduShyster travels to Minneapolis to explain how one very young man, after a brief stint in Teach for America, managed to buy a school board seat.
Teach for America, as explained in earlier posts, managed to collect nearly $1 billion in contributions, gifts, and grants in a five year period. It is a good gig.
EduShyster says that it is very effective to buy school board seats.
She contrasts this strategy to the failed attempt to buy the entire Bridgeport, Ct., school board.
The victory in Minneapolis cost only $37,000.
The loss in Bridgeport cost the corporate reformers over half a million.
You can see where this is leading.
