Jennifer Wagner : "I've heard it's (Diane Ravitch's Reign of Error) a lovely piece of fiction."
Gordon Hendry may, in fact, be on the state board to carry out the Democrats for Education Reform’s hedge fund agenda for education, since word on the street is the DFER is seeking to buy out the Indiana Democratic Party. There have been signs. In April of 2013, in order to help hide campaign funding, Larry Grau—Hoosier waterboy for the New York hedge fund managers--filed the papers for an Indiana PAC where the hedge fund money will start rolling. Since the hedge fund managers know that Hoosiers may kick the Republicans to the curb in the upcoming elections, they see this as the perfect opportunity to move in for the kill. It would be wise for voters to start monitoring the campaign donations of their local Democrats now. Hendry, acting like he cares about Indiana school children, teachers, and parents, has decided to take a “listening” tour across the state. I personally don’t care what propaganda Hendry has to say when he arrives in town with his hedge-fund and rightwing supported wife. In fact, it is time to make the state board of election an elected board, by and for the children, teachers, and parents of Indiana. There is a petition online now to do just that. Please take a few seconds and sign it.
UPDATE: Jennifer Wagner, in reference to my article above, posted this comment on her facebook page, after being asked how much money she was making doing PR work for IN DFER:
Jennifer Wagner: I was at the very first meeting, and I've mostly volunteered my time. I was paid a few times for some larger projects, but everything else has been pro bono. I have worked with Stand for Children on a contract basis. See? Transparency is neat! I don't do this because I get paid a fantastic amount of money. I do it because I believe in it.
Guess she doesn't realize that we know how hedge fund managers used Stand for Children to buy Illinois Democrats to throw teachers under the bus a while back.
