Everyone should read the article cited above: "Money Talks and when Jeremy Nowak is paying, Philly schools have to listen."

The article tells it like it is. It is scary that these people are driving Philadelphia educational politics and policy. It is clearly not about the children.

It is all about the self serving interests of those who want to profit off of our schoolchildren.
