Wow. Jaw meet floor. Scholastic, a serious publisher in the education space (that produces some good products, for instance Read 180) is now allowing its bloggers to call out senior government officials as corrupt on the basis of anonymous third party hearsay and no evidence. We’ve crossed into a strange new – and unfortunate – world if this is the new norm or somehow even remotely acceptable.
Update: As you can tell from the now broken link it’s to Scholastic’s credit that they’ve removed the post.
