Playing Catch-Up: Klein, Murdoch & Education
Maybe you caught The New York Times front page article Sunday about former NY city schools chancellor Joel Klein and his work with Rupert Murdoch.
But the education community has been atwitter about this for some time. Here are some links to help you catch up, since the phone hacking scandal took Klein/Murdoch from the business pages to the front page.
Before what will informally go down in history as "piegate," Reuters addressed Klein’s potential influence on Murdoch’s News Corp. in mid-July.
After hiring Klein last fall, the media mogul bought Wireless Generation, the company responsible for helping School of One with blended learning.
And, of course, here at DKF we’re tuned in for a number of reasons, among them blended learning‘s unexpected intersection with Rupert Murdoch.
