Education Industry

The public likes to think that education is somehow above the world of corporate greed. In fact, education is an industry in which fortunes can be made by clever entrepreneurs.

Class Size star
Beware of smoke and mirror reasoning fostered by entrepreneurs whose principal agenda is the discrediting of the public schools and the rechanneling of public monies into the private business sector.

Making money from School Reform star[offsite link]
Presented as “an act of philanthropy,” the charter school movement is opening the door to profiteering.

Teacher Evaluation Scam star
Public education is falling prey to the educational consulting scams proliferating as a result of the latest corporate approach to school reform. The Danielson Group is making millions offering services that an educated school workforce ought to be able to do for themselves.

The Foreign Language Numbers Game star[offsite link]
Maeve Maddox: In order to keep their classrooms filled, more and more colleges are discontinuing their language courses because “not enough students want them.” Consumerism should not dictate educational standards. Instead of dumbing down the college curriculum and making the United States more insular, pre-college instruction should make foreign language a priority from the early grades.

What is Liberal Arts Education and Who Needs It? star
The term Liberal Arts refers to the academic subjects that include language, literature, science, math, and history. In the past, an acquaintance with all these subjects was considered the mark of an educated person. Today's idea of "an educated person" seems to have changed.
