KBOO speaks with Parents Across America Oregon

Are you familiar with the terms Edtech? How about SBAC? 

Perhaps you should be.

The grassroots organization Parents Across America Oregon is currently campaigning to wake parents up to a battle against privatization that’s been underway long before the candidacy of Betsy Devos.

KBOO’s Canaan Schlesinger sat down with Deb Mayer and Pat Eck of Parents Across America to discuss standardized testing and privatization.

This is the first installment of an ongoing series about public education in our community.
