How Education Generates Profits for the Canny

A reader sends this comment:

While Business fails in Education, Education is certainly good for Business:

1) Quick Turnaround Teachers are funded by Walton, Dell, Gates….

2) Corporate-funded CCSS

3) Backed by corporate-advertising

4) Opening new corporate marketing channels

3) in corporate-funded charter schools

4) advocated by corporate-funded “front men”

5) so corporations can steal children’s data without parental consent

6) So they can create more “personalized products”

7) And them move on to PERPETUATE “corporate-takeover-of-education” policies

All we need now is for TV shows and Movies to start incorporating the benefits of Common Core into their character’s personalities. Actually, the whole takeover of education is almost like a movie script itself!!
