MisEducation Nation: Corporate Media and Corporate Education Reform

In September 2011 NBC held its second annual "Education Nation" summit--a series of events and broadcasts bankrolled by the corporate interests and foundations aligned with the so-called "education reform" movement.

Corporate media coverage of education policy tends to hew closely to the "reform" agenda: promoting charter schools and vouchers, embracing relentless testing and other "accountability" measures, and attacking teachers' unions for standing in the way of progress.

In this panel discussion, hosted by FAIR, we hear a different conversation about the state of public schools and the reality of "education reform."
