New York should drop a $27 million contract with Wireless Generation, a Rupert Murdoch-owned student data tracking company, in light of News Corporation's alleged wrongdoings, teachers' union leaders wrote in a Thursday evening letter to state officials.

Murdoch acquired 90 percent of Wireless Generation for about $360 million last November. At the time of the acquisition, Murdoch said he saw K-12 education as a "$500 billion sector."


THis is disgusting!!

This program is widely used here in central PA for K-6. While I teach seventh grade developmental reading and I don't use it, I can access my students' elementary records. :(
