What The Gates/Obama Education Reforms Bring


More tests, an emphasis on STEM and "practical" skills that translate to a neo-feudal globalized economy where the only values that are privileged are the ones that matter to corporations.

Latin goes the way of the Roman.

Liberal arts and humanities will go the same way soon.

Who has a need for those things in a globalized economy.


And of course the beauty of the corporatocracy knocking off the liberal arts and humanities is that children will grow into adults who don't know what they're missing in their educations or their lives.

So much easier to manipulate and sell corporate crap to adults who have been educated to know little else but WORK, SHOP, OBEY.

God forbid they should come across a little Ovid or Tacitus.
