Media Failure to accurately examine U.S. education

Fareed Zakari on CNN presents the neoliberal view of schools and the PISA results with Joe Klein, Wendy Kopp of Teach for America , Sal Kahn  and Thomas Friedman. http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2013/12/14/exp-gps-1215-pisa-education-p1.cnn.html

See other posts for what the PISA scores actually mean,

The Zakari presentation continues the promotion  of the neoliberal/corporate views of school reform.  The program would have benefitted from having some teachers who actually work in schools  on the program.
