David says:

Great interview! I think the one thing I wished they would have covered with you is the influx of ed tech into the process and the shocking amounts of taxpayer money that the tech companies, consultants and software developers plan on making from public schools.

In 2014 ed tech venture capital investments hit $2 billion (http://www.geekwire.com/2015/can-count-2-billion-education-technology-investment-hits-new-record/).

Testing and assessment products re the biggest ed tech sales category, with sales hitting $2.5 billion in school year 2012-2013 (http://thejournal.com/articles/2014/12/01/report-assessment-now-the-biggest-category-of-ed-tech-sales.aspx).

With so much money to be made, it is not conspiracy mongering to believe that these companies are pushing the reformers to “disrupt” education so that they can make big bucks from schools (and taxpayers) often without any data to support what they are doing (see the flipped classroom or blended learning).
