Well the hardworking staff was just sitting here in the Global Worldwide Headquarters minding our own business, when this popped up on the Twitters.
Of course we immediately asked Dan Currie if he has any connection to the charter school rumpus, and here’s how that exchange worked out:
Meanwhile, we subscribe to Massachusetts Playbook, as any right-thinking person would, so we hied ourselves to today’s edition where we found this:
** A message from Great Schools Massachusetts: An outdated, arbitrary cap on public charter school seats is stranding 37,000 kids on charter school waiting lists. It’s time to make public charter schools available to every family that wants them. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1V0LbXx **
AFTER TAKING A SELFIE, STAKING OUT A SIMPLE STANCE — “Baker on charters: ‘I just want the cap lifted,’” by Katie Lannan, State House News Service: “‘We’re here today to talk specifically about a ballot proposal to lift the charter school cap,’ Baker said to applause. ‘My view on this is really simple: I don’t really care how the cap gets lifted, I just wanted the cap lifted.’” http://bit.ly/1FRehBV
So, that’s sort of not ignoring it, right? It’s actually pushing an advertiser’s message into the editorial content. Isn’t that the conflict of interest?
(To be fair graf goes here)
To be fair, the headscratching staff is kinda confused here about who’s doing/saying what at this point. Hey, Dan Currie and Lauren Dezenski – help us out, wouldja?
