Strauss: Media Reports Show Education Reform Decisions Being Made In Secret

Valerie Strauss writes at the Washington Post (12/12) “Answer Sheet” blog that a series of recent media reports indicate that “education reform policy around the country is increasingly being made in secret or without public input,” often financed with “private philanthropic money.” Strauss cites media reports saying they show that school reformers and policymakers are pushing “their reform agenda to expand charter schools and vouchers in an effort to step up the privatization of public education.”
