Go into this at 17 minutes when a Department of Education employee and a parent starts talking about the privatization of our school systems, charter schools and the targeting of low-income and minority children, corporate greed, hedge fund managers and the Broad Foundation. Chris Hedges and Dr. West go further into the corporatization of our school system describing the dumbing down of the curriculum in our schools with the Common Core standards, standardized testing and staffing charter schools with temps rather than prepared, certified teachers.
The parent’s take on all of this is stunning.
Share this far and wide particularly with our PTA members who think they’re doing”poor children” a favor.
The education segment is 17:00 to 28:10.
After this Mock Trial, many went to Goldman Sachs to deliver the verdict. Most were arrested in front of the Goldman Sachs’ headquarters including Chris Hedges.
