Houghton-Mifflin West Coast sales manager Dianne Barrow made it a point to proclaim, “I hate kids.”
by Adan Salazar, Infowars:
“It’s never about the kids,” an executive for one of the largest Common Core textbook publishing companies admits in a recent undercover sting video released exclusively to Infowars.
“There’s always money in it,” according to Amelia Petties, Strategic Account Executive for Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt, who told undercover journalists with Project Veritas that rebranding Common Core would generate huge profits, kids be damned.
In the video, Petties claims the Common Core curriculum is here to stay, but that “slapping a new name on it” couldn’t hurt, “Because I can sell a shit ton of training around whatever you’re calling it.” When asked whether the quality of children’s lessons ever influence the sales of textbooks, Petties replies, “It’s never about the kids.”
Petties’ admission makes her the second Houghton Mifflin representative to be caught on tape admitting that profits trump their textbooks’ educational value.
On Tuesday, Project Veritas released another video exposing questionable comments made by Houghton-Mifflin West Coast sales manager Dianne Barrow, who made it a point to proclaim, “I hate kids.”
“I’m in it to sell books,” Barrow told undercover reporters. “Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.”
“It’s all about the money,” she added. “What are you, crazy? It’s all about the money.”
