In this episode, Dan and Ed identify forces hurting children. Forces at work in America that are not based on what is best for the child. These forces are driven by ideologues who have little or no experience as educators. Many are looking at ways to personally profit from the money taxpayers pay for education. The movements they have started are called Education Reform, or Corporate reform. Most boil down to little more than complex efforts to kill or forever alter public schools. In this episode Dan introduces the pivotal concept of Transformation, a required concept for future episodes and educators everywhere.
