When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time

I am writing this feeling reasonably like a David going via off in opposition to a Goliath. It undoubtedly won’t make me same old. There are many of us who keep weighing the evidence. Is Diane Ravitch extraordinarily wiley or extraordinarily obtuse? I’ll cross away it to you to decide.
It IS clear that there are parts of her narrative that don’t add up. My first sense that something wasn’t correct were given right here ultimate February. Then in August, problems I expressed in comments about the Clinton family’s involvement in the construction of digital learning and Joe Ravitch’s problem capital company, Raine Group, had been suppressed. You can read about it proper right here and proper right here. The Raine Group wisdom, with its ties to Ari Emmanuel and Parchment, has gotten increasingly more crowd pleasing as I’ve spotted the convergence of coaching, virtual reality, recreational, online credentialing and blockchain. Now my comments on her posts are all the time moderated. Some make it out. Some don’t. These from this afternoon haven’t as of posting time. I didn’t think they would.
So in recent times I had a flashback when a friend forwarded me Ravitch’s testimonial on the wonders of the MacArthur Foundation “This is What Philanthropy Looks Like.”
