Earlier this week , Project Veritas, the investigative journalism outfit led by James O’Keefe and known for explosive undercover videos, released their latest work – an investigation into Common Core and the big money being made off the controversial standards.
In the video, undercover Project Veritas journalists catch an executive from textbook publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on camera describing that Common Core isn’t about the kids, it’s “about the money”.
Diane Barrow, an account manager for Houghton Mifflin’s West coast division, is filmed saying, “You don’t think that the education publishing companies are in it for education do you? No, they’re in it for the money.”
When asked if she was in it for the kids, Barrow responds, laughingly saying “No, I hate kids”.
