Joe Bower is an educator who wants to reform education. But he has no sympathy for the rampant privatization that is now overtaking U.S. education with the support of the Obama administration. And it will only get worse under a Romney administration. In the post linked here, he has a video showing an advertisement for one of those aggressive for-profit operations now targeting American school children.
Why isn’t Secretary Duncan on the stump warning parents about these educational predators?
Technology is a good thing when used appropriately. But when advanced as it is now to lay off teachers and close schools, it is a disgrace. As Bower writes, children need real teachers, not home schooling by computer.
Time to say no. And say it loud.
