No Education Summit for You!

How is The 74’s Education Summit 2015 like a school of choice?

Greetings from sunny New Hampshire where I’m spending 9 hours with Campbell Brown, six GOP presidential candidates and a great many young staffers from education reform groups. Did I just type that? I meant to say *public.* Except that not all of the public is welcome at the 74’s Education Summit apparently. Teacher Penny Culliton, who teaches English (shout out!) at Mascenic Regional High School, was turned away at 8:15 AM despite having a ticket and a registration confirmation. The official reason: like a school of choice, The 74 makes its own rules and can accept or reject anyone it chooses. Fortunately an alert bystander captured the exchange. Now it’s back to work for me. Next up: Joel Klein!

    1. Did you watch the video? She was wearing a dress. How do you dress like an educator? Most don’t make enough to wear Campbell’s expensive suits.

    2. I really, deeply appreciate people like you who are willing to expose the blatant power-and-control motivations behind education rephorm. Thanks for your honesty.
