Just thinking. Corporate interests wish to take over education under the guise that they can do it cheaper. However, what the student will be getting is standardized everything. History, literature, etc. would be taught as they wish and at their whim. Their lobbyists write the laws now while legislators are busy chasing billionaires for election funds to put on a show at C-SPAN. (No need for legislators but we don't seem to understand that yet.) The one thing that the legislators do for their campaign money is to underfund all government agency functions until each is useless and farming it out to private concerns.
Yet we can ship planes filled with pallets of cash to foreign lands where we might bribe officials from where our army is fighting: Austerity, austerity, austerity. More and more they are now the sucklings at unrepresented taxpayer dollars. Students will not know what corporate interests don't want them to know: In many cases a bonafide underclass in the serf style. The kicker is that the wealthy can claim that the poor are attending private school also.
The ACA is a great example of what I am suggesting. Instead of a single-payer we allow corporate bottom lines to determine human health worth. Palin’s death panels won’t be needed. (Soon, because of a noncompliance a patient will be cut off from funding and treatment.) It should motivate all of us or we could go on smiling and saying, “have a nice day” to each other. Just thinking.
