"Miseducation Nation" Panel

NBC is staging its second annual “Education Nation” summit at the end of September–a series of events and broadcasts bankrolled by the corporate interests and foundations aligned with the so-called “education reform” movement.

Corporate media coverage of education policy tends to hew closely to the “reform” agenda: promoting charter schools and vouchers, embracing relentless testing and other “accountability” measures, and attacking teachers’ unions for standing in the way of progress.

What would a more reasonable conversation about public education look like?

On September 27, join FAIR and four of the most dynamic and thoughtful education experts and activists in the country for a FREE discussion about how the media mangle the debate over public schools.
