"Texas Partners With BloomBoard to Bring Competency-Based PD to the State," Edsurge wrote on May 24, 2017. This article fails to disclose that Edsurge and Bloomboard share investors: Imagine K12, Learn Capital, and the Gates Foundation.

I have been tracking these failures to disclose financial relationships because Edsurge has been selling its Concierge service to schools in order to help them buy ed-tech products. The lack of transparency is important, I think. Now Edsurge says it's ending the service, but I'm still going to keep track on the publication's disclosure issues.
