This Just In: Think Tanks are Corrupted by Money!
Today’s NYTimes features a lengthy article describing how the Brookings Institute, a “liberal think tank” (sic) promoted projects that enhanced the bottom-lines of major donors. Anyone who has followed the “school reform movement” (sic) knows that this has been going on for decades and continues. The Times article made no mention of this, however, since it would contradict their story-line of magnanimous donors launching charter schools for the good of mankind as opposed to the good of their shareholders. Maybe tomorrow’s edition of the newspaper will detail some of the shenanigans of other “think tanks” funded by billionaires who issue reports calling for schools to operate like businesses in an open market.
