In this special night of programming, CPT12 will present EDUCATION, INC. – a local film exploring school board issues, privatization of public schools and voting – followed by an expert panel discussion.
Written, produced and directed by Colorado filmmaker Brian Malone, EDUCATION, INC. offers a personal exploration into the dark money trail behind education reform. The film seeks to uncover the hidden profit motive of giant corporations, education publishers and education ideologues, and their attempts to take over and privatize public education in America.
Following the broadcast debut of EDUCATION INC., Colorado Public Television will present a live, panel discussion about issues raised in the film. Hosted by longtime Denver news anchor Ed Sardella, the panel will include EDUCATION INC. filmmaker Brian Malone; Jon Caldara, President of The Independence Institute and host of CPT12’s DEVIL’S ADVOCATE; beneficiary of an education scholarship and Executive Director of One Chance Colorado, James Coleman; Deputy Bureau Chief for Chalkbeat Colorado Nic Garcia; and Amie Baca-Oehlert, Vice President of the Colorado Education Association.
