EWA Radio: Episode 21
In her investigative takeout for Politico Pro, reporter Stephanie Simon tackles British publishing giant Pearson, which has raked in billions of dollars in profits as a direct result of the testing requirements mandated to U.S. by No Child Left Behind. Are lax regulations allowing Pearson to make huge profits despite falling short on its contractual obligations? Are states and districts in a position to do a better job of oversight? Simon talks with EWA’s Emily Richmond and Mikhail Zinshteyn about her reporting on Pearson and student data privacy more broadly.
