Taxpayers fund promotion for teen horror show on Channel One News

A typical example of how Houghton Mifflin’s Channel One News wastes school time.

We’ll give you three… er, two minutes.

From Jim Metrock: Channel One has never been popular in Massachusetts.  Does the name “Billerica” sound familiar? It’s hilarious how the Dudley-Charlton school district in Dudley, MA “honors” their Channel One contract. Channel One’s contract states: 4) The School agrees to receive the Channel One News programs from Channel One and to show the...
