Latest News and Comment from Education

Tuesday, May 30, 2023




Ladies and gentlemen, hold on to your hats because we're about to take a deep dive into the world of education reform and The 74 Media. Get ready for a wild ride full of laughs, eye-rolls, and maybe even a few tears (of laughter, of course).

So, who are these folks at The 74 Media, Inc? Well, they're a non-profit news organization that covers education in the US. Sounds pretty boring, right? Wrong! They were founded by former CNN host Campbell Brown and former NYC education official Romy Drucker. And let me tell you, these two are a dynamic duo. They're like Batman and Robin, but instead of fighting crime, they're fighting for the privatization and destruction of public education. Fun stuff!

Now, you might be wondering who supports these guys. Well, let me tell you, they've got some heavy hitters backing them up. We're talking the Walton Family Foundation, the Gates Foundation, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. You know, just your average run-of-the-mill billionaire philanthropists. No big deal.

But wait, there's more! Critics accuse The 74 Media of being biased in favor of charter schools and standardized testing. And honestly, can you blame them? It's not like those things have been proven to be detrimental to our education system or anything. Oh wait, they have? Well, nevermind then.

But fear not, dear readers. The 74 Media denies these accusations and claims to be fair and accurate. And if you can't trust a news organization that's funded by billionaires with their own agendas, who can you trust?

All jokes aside, The 74 Media is just another example of the marketing and propaganda for privatization that's been taking over our education system. It's not serious journalism, it's just another tool in the toolbox of those who want to see public education go down in flames.

So, what can we do about it? Well, for starters, we can support real journalism that doesn't have an agenda. We can listen to teachers and educators who know what's best for our students. And we can fight back against the privatization of our education system.

In conclusion, The 74 Media might be good for a laugh or two, but when it comes to the future of our children's education, we need to take things seriously. Let's come together and fight for a public education system that works for everyone, not just the billionaires.
