Cathie Black: Education Sarah Palin ask Prof. Gary Anderson

The president of New York University York University  signed a letter of support for NYC Schools Chancellor to be Cathie Black, but Gary Anderson, Professor of Education at NYU shared a different perspective  about her in the Huffington Post. 
  "...Steiner, though should know better. Unfortunately, although steeped in philosophy and educational theory, he shares Bloomberg's corporate ideology, and apparently is ultimately a political animal.  He thinks John Dewey was wrong-headed and that he recanted his life's work. Instead of blaming exploding rates of inequality, concentrated poverty, and unemployment for the plight of inner-city youth, he blames progressive educators--progressive both in the Deweyian sense of "child-centered" and in the sense of "left-liberal."
