 'The British mega-publishing corporation, Pearson. has plans for the future -- an all-encompassing vision of monetizing every aspect of education. Two researchers, Sam Sellar and Anna Hogan, have reviewed Pearson's plans.. It is a frightening portrait of corporate privatization of teaching and of student data, all in service of private profit. It raises two main issues of concern in relation to the integrity and sustainability of schooling: the privatization of data infrastructure and data, which encloses innovation and new knowledge about how we learn, turning public goods into private assets; and the transformation and potential reduction of the teaching profession, diminishing the broader purposes and outcomes of public schooling.'

We have seen how making health care into a business works for our people. Now, the power elite, are turning 'schools' into a business.


Pearson Invests in the Business of Education

The British giant Pearson announced that it was creating a venture capital fund to invest in new technologies to transform education. More tech trash on the way! Protect your child from tech capitalization and monetization!

"Pearson's vision is the roadmap for complete oligarchical command and control. It's 1984 as public policy manual. The whole intent is to increase profits by eliminating the bottom-up, democratic, interpersonal character of education for the masse"

"If your school or district gives a dime to this company, that dime will be used to destroy public education, to de professionalize and depersonalize teaching, to implement top-down scripting of education via Pearson products, and to develop vast databases for tracking and controlling individuals cradle-to-grave."

at the Ravitch blog,s "Bob Shepherd says

"Not long ago, I was handed the recent Pearson literature program, which included print books and online materials. I looked this stuff over, and it was appalling. Every page was filled with errors in grammar, usage, mechanics, and fact. It was totally incoherent. It intended to be test prep, but it didn't even do that well. I dutifully passed out the Pearson books and then ignored them for the rest of the year."

"Teachers and administrators: a boycott is in order. Pearson is one of those companies that will do ANYTHING to achieve higher sales this quarter, no matter how detrimental to kids and teachers. Refuse to buy or use their products. Starve the beast."
