Quite frankly, the Board of Regents and the New York State Education Department have become subsidiaries of the Gates Foundation.
I wonder how the citizens of this state will feel as they learn that the reins of power in education policy have been handed over to lobbyists and education reform proponents from the Gates Foundation and other education reform entities?
I wonder how Sheriff Andy Cuomo will publicly respond to this news.
It sounds to me like the Moreland Commission needs to send some subpoenas the way of the Board of Regents, the NYSED and the Gates Foundation in order to get to the bottom of just who is paying to have which policies developed and implemented as the official education policy of this state.
Not that I think that will happen.
But it should.
As B-Lo-Ed Scene noted this morning
Seems Empress Tisch and her friends from the financial ionosphere have been buying and selling education policy and calling themselves charitable donors not influence peddlers.
That's the kind of thing that needs investigating.
