Keep in mind that “Pearson, the nation's largest educational publisher” which is being investigated here, now owns America’s Choice, Inc. which it purchased last year.

As we in Pittsburgh know well, America’s Choice is the program that Roosevelt brought hereto be used by PPS for the ALAs (Accelerated Learning Academies).

Is this one more thing to keep an eye on?

Big money in education these days... What is the PPS policy on accepting free trips?

For the curious, check the board minutes. Look at the trips folks who have been out six days or more have been.

This appears in the HR section.
