Ravitch and Cody Announce the Imminent Demise of CorpEd With No Evidence to Back It Up

On December 16 Diane Ravitch reported, incorrectly as it turns out, that Teach for America has closed its New York offices.  The next day Anthony Cody took that incorrect news to spin a tale about the impending collapse of CorpEd's empire. 

Apparently, Cody still believes the multi-billion CorpEd empire will collapse as soon as he points out on his blog that none of the reforms do what they said they would do.  Really?  Wonder if Bill Gates knows that.  Blog, blog, blog.

Is he serious, is he naive, is he stupid, or has he gotten a memo from Randi Weingarten letting him know that the resistance needs to be mollified and shushed in order that the corporate unions' places at the oligarchs' table be protected?  

Meanwhile, in the real world, United Opt Out is planning the next phase to nullify the Common Core tests that will begin in earnest this coming spring. 

This war is far from over, and there can be no let up until high stakes testing is eradicated, segregated classrooms are eliminated, and corporate education is no more.  

Don't be duped.  Build a fire on the ridge to let everyone know you are ready to move out.
