It's really just a rewrite of a press release, but Edsurge notes that "Cory Reid, Former CEO of Instructure and MasteryConnect, Lands New Gig at Tyton Partners." There is no disclosure on the article that Edsurge shares investors with MasteryConnect: NewSchools Venture Fund, Learn Capital, GSV, and Catamount Ventures.

I have been tracking these failures to disclose financial relationships because Edsurge has been selling its Concierge service to K-12 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 of the publication's disclosure problems.
