, The National Law Journal


Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe on Thursday signed on as an adviser to Students Matter, the group that won a lawsuit in June striking down California's teacher tenure law.

    I find it interesting that Professor Tribe, a tenured professor at Harvard, known for its non-inclusive white male ‘old money‘ population, is abandoning his belief system to privatization profiteers.

    Note: he‘s an advisor on the board = he‘s getting paid.

    How this man can justify privatization when 1) negative information about curriculum is embargoed in some states 2) in depth journalism has shown serious differences in ‘claims‘ about private education and actual outcomes (always less than public schools) and 3) the organization he‘s become a front man for will profit handsomely as privatization becomes the norm.

    Guess you get old, you settle for security instead of integrity.

    Will Professor Tribe renounce his own tenured status at Harvard?
