That isn't a fact-check on the NOLA schools commentary, just to be clear. It's a "my opinion disagrees with your opinion" commentary. It's also not valid to voice outrage about the reporter's being described as a reporter, since industry and PR media often have reporters who promote whatever the company line is. It's perfectly legit to write up a commentary disagreeing with the commentary, but those particular points are not valid.
