This is an interesting & compelling article by Rosalind Wiseman on the partnership between the WWE and the National Education Association.  She talks about the irony of the anti-bullying message that the WWE purports to deliver and the political & business agenda that motivates their efforts to become more “family-friendly.”

It is clear how the WWE benefits from a partnership with the NEA.  And I even “get” how the NEA thought this partnership might be a good idea.  But I can’t for the life of me figure out how kids are supposed to benefit.  Isn’t that the group that both say they are aiming to reach?  Seems like a whole lot of exploitation to me…
