Questioning the Charter School Hype [Project Censored #21]

Charter schools have been heralded as the antidote to “failed” public schools, especially in poor urban communities of African-American and Latino/a students. However, as Salon, AlterNet, and other independent media outlets have reported, charter schools have come under fire for not fulfilling the roles or achieving the results that their proponents have claimed.

Senators Demand to know if President Obama’s Sweetheart Deal with Big Business Will Drive the Country into Another Ditch of Financial Crisis

The senators highlight three parts of the TPP that could undermine current and future efforts to regulate Wall Street and prevent another financial crisis: (1) Investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS), which allows foreign companies or investors to sue governments for losses in expected profits; (2) “Market access” provisions that could prohibit restrictions on predatory financial products, like risky forms of derivatives; and (3) Limitations on governments’ ability to impose capital controls, which could stymie efforts to prevent future financial crises as well as efforts to pass a financial transaction tax.
