Reclaim Reform

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” – Napoleon
What do automated mandated high stakes tests and tech laden charters such as Rocketship mean for children, parents and teachers? The answer is cleverly given in the form of graphic journalism.

Adam Bessie writes a few brilliantly focused words for Arthur King’s terrific graphics to produce a one page history of the causes and conditions of corporate America’s scapegoating of teachers and attempted takeover for profit of education reform. That means that a picture worth a thousand words become 1,000 thoughts.
