We bet most of the parents and taxpayers in Pittsfield and Manchester (two Annenberg partners in NH – there is also a Youth Organizers United in Manchester) have no idea they need to deal with a PR Firm created by an NGO/foundation out of UNH (Carsey Institute) to filter their communication to the various school boards.
The legality of this is questionable. The truth of the matter is, these “ideas” are NOT coming from the people or the parents, but from the foundations themselves. Most of the parents in these areas likely have no idea that the law is being overridden and their rights are being usurped.
The next new fad is “Restorative Justice”.
Previous nonsense. “Student Centered Learning” (or, letting the inmates run the asylum).
