Just to show that great minds think alike, here is EduShyster’s description of the Michigan plan to end public education as we know it.
The plan was designed by the deep thinkers at the free-market think tank called the Mackinac Center.
She calls it a reform “turducken,” which is one reform wrapped inside another, all of them together accomplishing the long-held dream of the extreme right: abolish public education and replace it with a market-driven system, with minimal regulation, minimal oversight, free choice for all, and profits for the plucky.
Sort of like the stock market. Just where you want your children’s future to be decided, right?
I wonder whether Governor Snyder will get a special award from ALEC as the first state to take the bold move of dis-establishing public education?
