Hechinger Report Pulls Out the Stops to Save the Gates Core

Below are funders of the Hechinger Report, and yesterday's hosannas for Common Core by Hechinger make it clear that the kinder and gentler corporate ed reform propaganda sheet has kicked its coverage up a notch. The piece is written a Taylor McGraw, TFA alum and Eva Moskowitz chain gang employee.

If you decide to read it, note how the piece frames the Common Core as a liberation document at the forefront of Civil Rights.  Perhaps such ideological blinders are what's required for these young fascists to be driven to any length to sacrifice these children's childhood for a bunch of goddamn meaningless test scores.
