Choice Media is a non-profit education news service, devoted to covering all facets of K-12 education quality and reform. Our mission is to expose America's high-cost, low-performing schools, while highlighting successes where they occur and pointing the way to a more hopeful tomorrow.

Founded by veteran television host and documentary filmmaker Bob Bowdon, ChoiceMedia.TV is the nation's online hub for education news. We select the most pertinent headlines from coast-to-coast, provide real-time analysis of developing stories and meet with those making waves in the education world.

And most importantly, Choice Media wants to hear from you. Have a news tip or idea? Let us know. Are you a teacher, parent or student with a first-hand story the world should hear? Record a video and send it our way. Chronicling what really happens in the nation's schools, we'll come that much closer to making reform a reality.

> the founder

Bob Bowdon has been a television producer, reporter and commentator for the past fifteen years. His varied career has seen him conducting in-depth on-camera interviews, anchoring newscasts and producing nationally-syndicated TV shows. He's even appeared in satirical news sketches for the Onion News Network.

The Cartel, Bowdon's award-winning documentary, reveals the nature and extent of corruption in public education. Behind every dropout factory, we discover, lurks a powerful, entrenched and self-serving cartel. And the film puts a human face on those who suffer as a result.

Ultimately, The Cartel is a call to action, not despair. The film profiles heroic administrators, teachers and students who defy the oddsparticularly in schools of choice. The Cartel powerfully concludes that we must insist on immediate and systemic reform that puts students first. And we must do it now. That same conviction animates the work of Choice Media.
