Joel Reidenberg

D&S affiliate Joel Reidenberg was quoted in this NYT piece exploring how the private sector’s interests intersects with the goals of edtech.

“What you’re seeing is an organization pushing an agenda to improve education through technology coinciding with the self-interests of companies providing funding to that organization,” said Joel R. Reidenberg, a professor at the Fordham University School of Law in Manhattan. “If you had municipal governments providing Wi-Fi in poor neighborhoods, you wouldn’t need to subsidize the private sector to do it.”
