Revelations on Education by the New Orleans Imperitive

Get the latest developments about the crisis in public education caused by education deformers. Listen to Dr. Mark Naison and Crazy Crawfish, Jason France on radio WBOK, (This link allows you to see the recorded version of the program) New Orleans on Monday, at 10:00 A.M. Dr Naison will discuss his recent news story comparing the striking similarities between the current charter school movement and the recent sub-prime mortgage crises.

Jason France has new findings about how the so called Louisiana Recovery District creates  graduation statistics while hundreds of students roam the streets instead of getting an education.  Could many New Orleans schools still be classified as "dropout factories"?

Hi!

Could you sign this petition: change.org/petitions/board-of-education-and-all-educational-facilities-and-municipalities-reform-education-so-that-it-s-fair-for-all-and-not-for-the-elite-few-or-the-dull-many-no-child-left-behind

Readers, be careful about signing some of these petitions. The one suggested above seems to be a petition promoting online education. There are companies making big profits with online eduction using our tax money for schools. In Louisiana we have two online charter schools that collect 90% of the MFP for every student they sign up, yet statistics show that such online academies are producing the poorest results of all schools. Many students do not sign in regularly and learn little, yet these for profit companies get paid even when students are not being properly served.
