As Bill Gates, Eli Broad, & the Walton family foist their experiments on other people's children, they have no accountability for their mistakes.The Gates Foundation's pivoted from small schools to Common Core to 'personalized learning.' Each pivot involved maximum imposition on districts and states eager for new money, but the money  had strings attached! The good news  is that the public is becoming aware of the foundations' influence and their lack of accountability. They can mess up a district, a state, or the nation and walk away! We never heard an apology from Gates about his 'teacher evaluation by test scores' fiasco or the Common Core controversy or the farce of 'personalized learning' by computer.
