Reblog of Diane Ravitch: ‘A Letter to Change.Org


A Letter to Change.Org.

Quote: “StudentsFirst claims 1.3 million members. According to the letter sent to my blog, 1.275,700 of those members were gathered at Change.Org, using the same deception that fooled me.

Michelle Rhee uses these numbers to raise millions of dollars from rightwing donors and to intimidate politicians to accept her agenda. She then spends these millions to bash teachers and promote privatization.

If my math is right, StudentsFirst has 24,300 members nationwide, not 1.3 million members.

No one can tell me how to resign as a member.

Enough is enough.”
