From the Diane Ravitch blog:
“The Education Industry Association, started in 1990, has merged with the EdTech Association. That was about a year ago, so this is a huge lobby with savvy in how to increase profits. One of the biggest sources of profits is USDE where there is black hole of failed software, but still active contracts to the same companies.”
Terry explained something to us a while back about her term “legacy teaching” coming from the computer industry. I wonder if this “failed software” with active contracts might be compared to the huge legacy network out there.
