Those who follow this little rant-fest of mine know I believe the media consistently fails us when it comes to informing our citizens on issues of policy.
On the left menu is a link to a petition about NBC's upcoming "Education Nation" series. Once again, the Billionaire Boys Club will dominate the discussion in lieu of conversations with real experts on education reform and real teachers who are actually down in the trenches every day.
If you are so inclined, sign the petition. Media companies are notorious for changing content at the slightest ripple of discontent; go ahead and drop your pebble in the pond (did I really just use that metaphor?).
