The Birth of Fake News: Portrait of the Movement


Did you ever wonder how Fake News gets it start? The Corporate Education Reform Vanity Press produces a "research" report that touts the so called blessings of Privatization.

At the same time, the report identifies areas of focus as the sector has further to go in meeting the academic needs of all students, because there are still too many under performing charter schools in the state.
"Though charters still educate a relatively small proportion of California's students (9% in 2015-16), they are having a disproportionate impact on student learning," said Elizabeth
