In the World of Corporate Ed Reform, Failure Is no Impediment to Success

Commented Mar 11, 2011 at 21:47:25 in Education

“We're in a class war, but the mainstream media doesn't report it as such...Attacks against the working class (formerly middle class) are widespread and blatant ...And, the sad fact is that our side is losing the war to the rich and corporate interests...Education is the tip of the spear for the deformers in their attacks...Great piece, Leonie...Keep it up..!”

Our Kids' Progress Should Be Encouraged, Not Disparaged

Commented Aug 8, 2010 at 04:30:06 in New York

“Can we all just admit that mayoral control has been a failure under the Bloom/Klein administration...

The PEP has become a rubber stamp for the Mayor, CEC's have been totally ignored and any parent input is completely dismissed by the Chancellor...

We need to get educators back into Tweed, not arrogant corporate lawyers and more public relation types...

We need music, arts, and basic civics back into the classrooms to develop and prepare a whole child, ready to face the challenges of the 21st century...

We need to keep public education alive in this City, not allow the privatization of our schools...

I ask, when was the last time a Wall Street hedge fund operator did anything good for you or me that didn't benefit their bottom-line..?

In my opinion, Ms Ravitz is just the latest addition to an already over-bloated press operation at Tweed...The mission @ DOE to me seems to be to put the best spin on the absurd policies and misinform the general public...

How can so many NYC residents have the mis-perception that somehow Bloomberg is the "Education Mayor"...It's an out and out lie to me...

It would be a good start to abolish the press shop and put their salaries directly into the classrooms where it's needed most...Tweed needs to Stop the Spin..!!

Oh yeah, welcome to NYC DoE, Natalie...”

“I agree with you, Marielle...Let's hope society wakes up before it's too late...And, there is plenty of nature in NYC, take for example the Ridgewood Reservoir which the Parks Dept wants to destroy for unnecessary and unwanted active recreation fields...”

Ask ACORN

“This guy is a sham. No history or past, as to where he comes from, what was the outcome of the alleged problems at Rutgers. The alleged two incidents with females and knives, at Rutgers. Was he arrested and or forced to leave the school. Were there any agreement made with the female students and Rutgers. Alleged similar type of event later on. Alleged assault on a reporter. Any arrests in these cases? Sham fundraiser and refusal to refund money. No info on personal life as marital status, children, girlfriend, boyfriend, et al. Nothing, voting record is spotty. No association with any Brooklyn organization, like NAACP, YMCA, democratic club, et al. Nothing he can truthfully say he participated in or sponsored in East New York, BedStuy, Brownville, Ft. Greene, Carnarsie, etc. He came out the woodwork. Rootless in community and only connected with Barron and A.T. Mitchell. Man-up organization which is Barron organization funded with the little bit of money from Barron. For any woman or women organization to support a women abuser is to believe that a leopard can change it's spots.”
