Protesting Corporate Control of Education

The Washington Post has an article here describing a protest to corporate control of school reform.

I completely agree with this protest.  I taught happily for 37 years but retired early.  I'm a big believer in local control of schools.  To paraphrase Winston Churchill, local control is the worst form of school management except for everything else.   The problems with local control can be fixed with elections and a new school committee;  problems with federal control (Common Core, testing etc), or big business control, are incredibly hard to fix.
