|But wait ... the Gates Foundation was funding ALEC? Why? Aren't they half-way between that wonderful Steve Jobs (blessings be upon him) and that even more wonderful Warren Buffett (likewise)? In a word, No. There's a right-wing war to destroy public education, and the Gates Foundation is in the thick of it. Again, ALEC writes the laws that bought-off state legislators get passed...But maybe Gates just wanted to give Microsoft a piece of that education-destroying "online learning" business??? [Check out Florida's privatize education push that is chaired by Jeb Bush whose brother Neil runs an education software testing company. Wealthy families do love their incestuous relationships with other wealthy families -- until they're caught doing the nasty.]|
