Being Held Accountable Quotes. QuotesGram

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."

The good news  is that the public is becoming aware of the foundations' influence and their lack of accountability.
