James O’Keefe is a Hack [Video]

Not a journalist.
This week's episode of Classroom Close-up, NJ is a repeat, but I thought I'd post it anyway. It features stories from last year's NJEA Convention in Atlantic City including the segment I produced featuring Sir Ken Robinson and Soledad O'Brien. It's somewhat amusing how much of the press I see regarding this event boils down to one of two angles:
The convention is a true professional development event where educators go to get better at their craft. In fact, it's a much more serious professional development event than some private sector business conferences I've attended. How hard can it be to report the truth?

Anyway, for a true glimpse inside the event check out the episode.
