Enhanced ReCast - DDD 4 - Deliberately Dumbing Down series

Part 4 - This seven-part series of interviews with Charlotte Iserbyt focuses on the intentional decline of public education in the United States.  Find more Enhanced ReCasts at mediamodepresents.blogspot.com.

Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America's classrooms.  

You can find a wealth of downloadable information at her web site, deliberatedumbingdown.com.

At the bottom of the page, you'll notice a new feature (thanks to Yahoo! Web Player) - you can now listen to the episode right from this page!  You can't use the chapter headings as bookmarks yet but hey, at least you can refer to them as you listen.  You'll still need to download the m4a version at the link below and use either Itunes or VLC to utilize those.  Enjoy!  Audio tagged by mediamode, November 2012.
