Oh, yes, I almost forgot--it is the poster boy of corporate education bottom feeding, and the Janus-faced anti-corporate ed advocate, Bob George. In one year, thanks to Bob's steering, Save Our Schools has been reduced from a band of 7,500 madder-than-hell parents and educators in 2011 to a well-behaved and totally-contained mutual admiration society of 150 souls in 2012, with nothing to show for this sad and utter diminution other than an incredible shrinkage accompanied by the creepy, continuing presence of Bob George and his interminable online steering committee meetings, where his opinion or that of his small cadre of insider henchmen always prevails on issues that eventually get watered down so as not to upset the status quo that has been cemented by philanthro-capitalists and the ed industry to which George remains is a dependable unit.

In the meantime, here is a link to a piece I did for Substance News sort of recently, and below is the original post that brought out the loyal founders of the Prop Up Bob Society.
