Brian Jones discusses Real vs. Phony Education Reform

I had the pleasure of hearing Brian Jones speak in Portland a few weekends ago, the day after the MAP boycott began, so things have been a bit crazy but…I want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to view this wonderful presentation. Then, we’ll get back to the struggle at hand.

Education activist Brian Jones discusses Real vs. Phony Education Reform and punctures the myth that privatization (charter schools, high-stakes testing, merit pay) will create racial and economic justice for underserved communities. Jones is an elementary school teacher in New York City, union activist and author, most recently of a chapter in the book Education and Capitalism on The Struggle for Black Education.
