    is the theory behind the Detroit public school take over AND every public school "reform" mandated since 1983 (excluding IDEA, 2004.) Detroit exemplifies the corporate assault on education but other states & cities are suffering this stealth assault- TN, LA, MI, CN, NJ, NY, FL, NC, IN, TX, OH, WI, and the list grows.

    The tools of destruction are emergency managers, mayoral & state take overs of districts that usurp elected school board decisions, Race to the Top, No Child Left Behind, testing designed for failure, Education Management Companies (EMO's) and CMO's, Democrats for Education Reform (DFER), Arne Duncan, Jeb Bush's (FEE), Rahm Emanuel, Michelle Rhee (Children First) Teach for America (TfA), ALEC written legislation across EVERY state. And , yes, Barak Obama.

    Listen to Karen Lewis tell the powerful to go to ...

    Duncan & his neoliberal cronies next assault is on higher education.

    It's time to Occupy public education!
