MEDIA BIAS:
How Corporate Media Shapes the School Reform Debate
(and what Progressives can do about it)

Wednesday Sept. 15th, 2010
6:00pm‐8:00pm
Crossroads Theater – Five Points
2590 Washington Street (26th & Welton)

Community members, grassroots journalists and social media activists will shine the spotlight where the mainstream media refuses to go, including:

  • The myth of objectivity in a one-newspaper city
  • Corporate media & the Charter School Industrial Complex
  • School privatization, gentrification & corporate interests
  • Critique of pro-reform infomercials like “The Lottery” and “Waiting for Superman”
  • Grassroots “trouble-makers” vs. corporate saviors
    Casting teachers as villains and administrators as heroes
  • “Civil Rights”as a corporate slogan
  • Strong women facing the Goliath political machine
  • Community engagement: the missing link
  • Power to the people through grassroots story telling

Supporting Organizations: Northeast Community Congress for Education, Colorado Black Round Table, Colorado Progressive Coalition, Black Education Advisory Council, and the Diverse Neighborhood Collective
