NJ Teachers And Students Come Together In Collective Roar

Local education throughout the US is being decimated by the need to comply with the mandates (and whims) emanating from Washington, DC. The obvious profit-driven shift from independent control to the test/curriculum-based No Child Left Behind (and now Common Core) serves private corporations at the expense of students. A percentage of school funding is now shifted to private profit rather than staying in the schools. The pushback against this shift started as a low rumble, but as the de-professionalization of teaching and commodification of students escalates, communities and teacher groups have come together as a collective roar. DC Media Group has been covering this issue. While it at first appears to be an outside of the beltway issue, there is a single point of protest for this system gone awry and that is the US Department of Education.
