As last night's events in Newark show, where Governor Christie's school dictator Cami Anderson was chased out of a School Board meeting, and as the anti-Common Core resistance around the nation also demonstrates, teachers, parents and students will not passively accepted the packaged, undemocratic solutions that "elected officials, business leaders and philanthropists" are trying to shove down their throats. They are starting to fight back and demand that the people on the ground, in schools and communities, should have the primary voice in shaping education policy, not Bill Gates, or Chris Christie, or Rick Snyder, or Eli Broad, or Rahm Emmanuel or the North Carolina legislature. The President doesn't get it, nor do most leaders of the Republican Party. But BATS get it. And we will make sure the resistance multiplies.

Education Quote for the Day: "The American people frankly have been over many, many years-to be blunt-fat, dumb and happy. If they want their children to compete with India, China or Korea, they better get them a far better education" ~Eli Broad --- Could his "Broadie Superintendents" be on their way to the suburbs in NJ?

Deborah Lang Here on Long Island NY in a small district called Center Moriches a brave teacher spoke to Newsday (the main newspaper) and told the truth.

I am not in this district, I am a parent, not a teacher, but I sent a letter. Here it is: Dear Superintendent Stewart, It has come to my attention that you have a very brave teacher working for you. He is speaking up, and parents are grateful. The choices you make from here on in will be closely observed. He is choosing to be on the right side of history. He does not stand alone. We’re now at a point in public education that what we are witnessing is far more destructive to our schools than any prior educational reform.

Members of the Fisher family, founders of the Gap clothing chain, plowed more than $8 million into a dark money campaign in California's 2012 elections, partially redacted documents show. The money went toward defeating Gov. Jerry Brown's tax increase, Proposition 30, and supporting the anti-union Proposition 32, according to the documents, which list donors to Americans for Job Security, a group that handled contributions in the campaign. Those documents also show that Charles Schwab, founder of Charles Schwab Corp., donated $6.4 million through Americans for Job Security. Philanthropist Eli Broad, who publicly backed Brown's tax increase proposition, made a $500,000 contribution, according to the documents. Las Vegas Sands Corp. CEO Sheldon Adelson and his wife gave a combined $500,000. Crossroads GPS, the dark money nonprofit founded by Karl Rove, chipped in $2 million."
Frank Gehry, Grand Avenue, and the Future of L.A.'s Bunker Hill 10/03/2013 Los Angeles Times Text size: AA Oct. 03--On Wednesday evening I took part in a panel discussion at Walt Disney Concert Hall with Mayor Eric Garcetti, Eli Broad, Frank Gehry and Los Angeles Philharmonic President Deborah Borda. We were guests in a live on-stage version of the KCRW radio program "Which Way, L.A.?," with Warren Olney and Frances Anderton as hosts. The program was planned to mark the 10th anniversary of Disney Hall. But it was also meant to examine the future of Grand Avenue and long-delayed redevelopment plans for Bunker Hill being overseen by a joint city and county committee. In that sense it turned out to be very timely; this week has brought a flurry of news about the fate of the project. New York developer Related Cos. has won yet another extension from the committee, despite also getting a harsh rebuke from L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina, its chairwoman, for the uninspired nature of the latest design for s ...
Happy 10 year anniversary Walt Disney Concert Hall. I enjoyed the Which Way LA? Discussion about the architecture of the concert Hall and it's influence on the art district on Bunker Hill as well as along Grand Avenue. Frank Gehry was funny and enlightening, while philanthropist Eli Broad was quirky.
On 10/2 I'll be part of this Disney Hall event on the future of Grand Ave w/ Eli Broad, Frank Gehry + Deborah Borda:

The question I ask is why should Eli Broad and Bill Gates have more of a say as to what goes on in my child’s classroom than I do? – Sue Peters, Seattle parent In recent months, three prominent school district superintendents resigned or were fired, after allegations of mismanagement, autocratic leadership styles, and/or the pursuit of unpopular policies. All three were trained by the Broad Superintendents Academy: Maria Goodloe-Johnson (class of 2003) of the Seattle school district, LaVonne Sheffield (class of 2002) of the Rockford, Illinois school district, and Jean-Claude Brizard (class of 2008) of the Rochester New York school district. Brizard resigned to take the job as CEO of Chicago schools, but his superintendency in Rochester had been mired in controversy. Another Broad-trained Superintendent recently announced his resignation: Tom Brady (class of 2004) of Providence, Rhode Island. Three more Broad-trainees have been recently placed in new positions of authority: John Deasy (class of 2006), ...

"Worldview shapes every way of life on the planet, but the Common Core Standards ignore it, just as they ignore much else of fundamental importance. Millions of kids are busy picking up mandated acorns of information, unaware of the tree of knowledge from which they fall. Enamored of wealth, power, and celebrity, America has handed over a system of education that was once the envy of the world to the likes of Bill Gates, Eli Broad, the Waltons, Jeb Bush, Joel Klein, Michael Bloomberg, Arne Duncan, Rahm Emanuel. Add Michelle Rhee to that list and the lot of them have a total of eighteen months of actual teaching experience. Sensible education reform begins with a serious, society-wide dialogue about what’s worth learning. It’s a dialogue we’ve yet to have." Marion Brady

This is a great article that appeared in the Worcester Magazine on education reform under our present Governor. by Janice Harvey Story Created: Jan 10, 2013 The word “reform” gets kicked around more often than an NFL football, but nowhere do we hear it more than in discussions involving education. What galls most educators are the opinions of noneducators regarding schools, on both a local and a national level. Among the loudest and wealthiest critics of our public schools are the good folks from the Broad Foundation. Established in 1999 by billionaire Eli Broad (rhymes with “erode”) a real estate and insurance tycoon who never spent five minutes in front of a classroom. I’ve written about Broad before, but some information bears repeating; if you’ve never heard the name, listen up. The Broad Foundation is part of an extremely wealthy threesome of “reformists” – the other two being The Gates Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation (established by the Wal-Mart family). Yes, that’s r ...
Mr. President, Education Is a Human Right, Not a Product Thursday, 10 January 2013 09:10 By Bill Ayers, Truthout | Op-Ed President Barack Obama delivers remarks on education and budget priorities, while Jack Lew, Director of the United States Office of Management and Budget, right, and Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education, look on at the Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology, in Baltimore on February 14, 2011.

Sadly, your administration has contributed significantly to the mounting catastrophe. You’re not alone: The toxic materials have been assembled as a bipartisan endeavor over many years, and the efforts of the last several administrations are now organized into a coherent push mobilized and led by a merry band of billionaires including Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Sam Walton, and Eli Broad.

Public education is being purposefully de-funded. Let's take our public education back.

www.NoOnMeasureJ.net. Let's get facts straight, $130 billion in the next 60 years and where is it going? Parsons-Brinckerhoff, CH2M Hill, AEG, real estate developers like JMB Realty, Westfield, Eli Broad who will make a killing off of MTA's corporate handout--all for 7 rail lines that don't even come close to covering the mobility needs of the entire county. While poor bus riders are asked to bear fare increases, cuts in their bus service, Black and Brown working class neighborhoods see displacement by the accelerated gentrification of box store shops and luxury housing. At the same time Measure J is still giving money for expansion of double decker highways while eviscerating communities and their lungs--very environmental!! Have no illusions about the system, MTA is a corporate boondoggle agency that's always willing to trample civil rights and environmental justice for crony deals.

Broad Empire Thought I would remind everyone that Eli Broad built much of his empire on unsustainable tract housing. Having grown up in Orange County it was Kauffman and Broad (KB Homes) that leveled hillsides and expanded suburban sprawl in unprecedented ways, not to mention their reputation for cheaply built homes. So, I suggest we all keep this in mind when reflecting on not only the situation at MOCA but his own museum and collection as well, the strange truth is that Broad's empire exists because of his "for profit" mentality and his desire to destroy the natural landscape to build homogenous tract housing. KB Homes is a world-wide organization now. I consider Broad's money to be blood money. I ask, how do you create a kind of "one-dimensional monoculture," while also supporting the arts and cultural diversity and growth? The answer is you don't. That kind of irony is intolerable. The affects his company has had on the natural-cultural landscape are, indeed, irreversible! I should also hope that some ...
Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad hasn’t made scheduled payments to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles because the institution has $2.1 million in grants it hasn’t put toward exhibitions.
The AFT convention has moved a bit away from what we had to witness in Seattle in 2010, when Bill Gates was the featured speaker. This year, as Karen Lewis last night told the Peace and Justice Caucus, the featured speaker later today is Diane Ravitch. There is still a long way to go. For example, the current leadership is still touting "Common Core," and when Randi Weingarten was listing the representatives of the evils of plutocracy, she listed the Waltons, Eli Broad, and, of course, the Koch brothers and the people behind ALEC. But she left out Bill Gates. I was wondering if next year Sam Walton's union busting heirs will put a couple of million dollars (maybe .0001 percent of their combined fortunes) into promoting "Common Core" and teacher "accountability" stuff (as Gates is doing) then next time AFT will leave the Wal Mart people off the list of plutocratic bad guys. Uncoll, but also unsurprising.
Charles Young, the former chief executive of the Museum of Contemporary Art, has urged the institution's influential life trustee Eli Broad to remove museum director Jeffrey Deitch.
