Today's post is a sharing of Robert Freeman‘s article posted on Common Dreams. The title of the post is “How to Destroy Education While Making a Trillion Dollars.” The post can be found here.
I really don't have anything to add. Freeman, a history teacher in Los Altos, California and one of the founders of One Dollar for Life, a non-profit organization that helps American students contribute toward the building of schools in developing countries through student donations of one dollar, has, I believe, summed up the situation clearly and quite expertly.
Please read and share widely if you believe in the value of a public education and are concerned that the privatizers are about to destroy something that needs to be saved, repaired, and promoted as a key foundation of our democracy.
