Integrity in Education Launches to Shift Education Debate in America
New organization aims to defend children against corporate takeover of public education
WASHINGTON - Integrity in Education, a new organization designed to expose the corporate and profit-motivated influences working to control public education across the country, will outline its agenda for restoring the national discourse about public education to focus on children’s best interests and the role of education in a democracy during a telephone press call on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time.
Integrity in Education will call on the Department of Education to disclose any and all associations with profit-driven corporations, who have worked to exclude everyday Americans from important decisions about our children, our schools, and our future while raising public fears of a corporate takeover of public education.
Integrity in Education’s new campaign will work to expose the revolving door between corporate influences and the Department of Education while confronting the corporate front groups looking to profit off of the public's concern for our children.
