'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.'
