MicroSoftNBC Interviews Lawyer on Literacy, Reading, Testing, Homeschooling, and More

The next time that the young guns of The Cycle have a legal issue to talk about, I am wondering if they will find an educator to analyze the issues around the case.  After giving the Occupy DOE event thirty seconds of video with clueless voiceover by the host of the show, the producers gave United Way CEO, Sheena Wright, 7 minutes to share her commonplace ignorance on the issues of opting out, testing, home schooling, literacy, and more.   But then, with New York City short on educational reform scholars and commentators, what's wrong with a lawyer's advice on school issues?  After all, she has been to school.
