John Oliver Gets American Public Education

For those who missed it, John Oliver did a blistering +12 min piece on public education, standardized tests, and the Pearson Mafia. What makes the comedic send up both funny and alarming is his ability to simplify the complex psuedo-monopoly, that is the Common Core, even though state and federal officials continue to blindly adhere to it. If you haven’t watch it do yourself and all the local kids a favor and educate yourself on what public education is turning into. Then, share the link and call local, state, and federal officials to let them know how ridiculous the current system has become.
