program date: 
Mon, 03/10/2014
Tom Becker reads a CounterPunch article by Geoffrey MacDonald, "The Revolving Door of Unemployment". MacDonald argues against the fallicious logic that tries to solve problems created by economic growth, like stagnating wages and unemployment, with MORE economic growth.

High Stakes Testing As Class War Strategy

program date: 
Mon, 03/10/2014
Bill Resnick talks with local education activist Hyung Nam about high stakes testing in US schools. Hyung talks about how he was threatened with firing from Wilson High School for asking critical questions about high stakes testing, but also for raising other critical questions about teacher's academic freedom. Hyung explains how business interests are driving "education reform" to turn education into a business. This is happening, he says, in the broader context of capitalism's perpetual crisis (stagnating wages, recessions, collapsing tax bases, etc.), which is transfered to the sphere of education in terms of greedy or lazy teachers. 20:17 minutes (18.57 MB)
