The public has been sold a bill of goods about what is needed to improve our schools.

We see misinformation on television. We hear it from our leaders in both parties.

It is hard to explain the real issues in our schools when the media bombards the public with the corporate reform narrative.

Once in a while, some insightful journalist breaks through the media blanket.

Here is some good news: I just came across an article posted a while ago by someone who totally gets what is going on.

The author refers to Race to the Top as a “marketing” ploy for failed ideas.

He calls it a “race to the bottom,” tied firmly to Bush’s bad ideas.

It was posted on the popular blog site of Jonathan Turley.

Keep singing.

So will I.
