Blogger and activist Jonathan Pelto (www.jonathanpelto.com) interviews Professor Yohuru Williams on the current state of public education and the privatization efforts underway in the US. Then Cheryl and Jonathan discuss the latest news about the
CT state legislature and bills/actions related to public education. The rights of parents to opt their children out of the Common Core test the SBAC is also discussed.
This is a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it. This is the first of a series of monthly interviews on the topic.
The Assault on Public Education is produced in the studio of WWUH 91.3 FM at the University of Hartford and
airs on the last Monday of every month from 12- 1:00 PM.. at WWUH 91.3 FM (www.wwuh.org)
