OccupySF is getting its first brush with national — and very conservative — figures; protesters are planning to make their way down to the Palace Hotel this afternoon where right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be opining on education.
The two right-wingers arrived in San Francisco today for the 2011 national summit of Jeb Bush's Foundation for Excellence in Education. Murdoch will be the keynote speaker on Friday morning, where he is expected to discuss the use of digital technology in education reform.
And while they plan to talk education reform, protesters with OccupySF have a much more cynical topic on their agenda: The “selling of public education.”
