It’s Friday afternoon. Folks are thinking about the weekend and just want to tune out. I understand.

So this afternoon, we are providing some videos for you to kick back and watch at your leisure.

Have a nice weekend.

First up are a set of video’s from the Seattle University Academic Salon that was led by Seattle Public School teachers regarding the education (corporate) reform movement. You might want to turn up the volume on this first set of videos but it is well worth listening to.

Eric Muhs on Teach for America, the Harlem School Zone, New Orleans and high stakes testing. Eric leaves no stone unturned.

India Carlson on charter schools, the Gates Foundation, the Broad Foundation and the Walton family.

Dan Troccoli on the oligarchy and education (corporate) reform, McKinsey, the MAP test and Dr. Goodloe-Johnson.

This video was shown at the end of the Academic Salon:

The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink

And then there was the demonstration by union members in Washington D.C. this week:

Labor Actions Hit D.C.

And this animated video of Ken Robinson on Changing Education Paradigms, just for fun.
