Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell

Is this the new face of corporate school reform?

From May 31, 2011 Business Insider:

At the end of 2010, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp paid almost $400m in cash to purchase 90% of Wireless Generation, a company that bills itself as "the leading provider of innovative education software, data systems, and assessment tools for reading, writing and math,"

On Tuesday, News Corp announced "The Future of American Education: A Presidential Primary Forum." The joint effort with the College Board will pit "all Republican primary candidates who meet a threshold level of support in national polls" against each other.

The Wall Street Journal's Paul Gigot and Joel I. Klein, former  Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education and current CEO of News Corp's education division will moderate the panel.
