Immoral: Media in bed with Big Ed

One of the invisible things I've been searching for around Norfolk is investigative journalism aimed at education, specifically, why the public schools can't teach almost 1/4 of the kids to read properly.

This 1/4 figure, by the way, has been holding steady for many decades, ever since the Education Establishment (a/k/a Big Ed) has been teaching kids to read with sight-words. So stupid. You'd think the press would want to expose this fraud. If people can't read, who buys newspapers???

Anyway, not finding the aggressive journalism I expect has been a frustration. And a red-hot inspiration. Please see the tragicomic, ought-to-be-off-Broadway result: "Media in bed with Big Ed: a love story??" (To be factual, it's an article written in the form of a playlet.)

From what I can figure out, the mainstream media support Big Education reflexively, even thought their interests are really different. Alas...If we had any investigative journalists left, they'd be asking the big editors what's going on?????

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director. But main activity is writing about education reform.. The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved. 

That claim is clearly explained in new book  "Saving K-12--What happened to our public schools. How do we fix them?"

I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
