Ravitch takes it to the 'Billionaire Boys Club'

Speaking truth to power
The “current obsession with making our schools work like a business,’’ writes Ravitch, “threatens to destroy public education.’’ (Boston Globe, "Bill Gates' risky adventure")
Gates denies he has it, plays coy
“The education system is always decided politically,’’ said Gates. “If she (Ravitch) thinks foundations are dictating, I don’t see it.’’

  1. Gates uses his foundation like a sledge hammer. Broad is even worse. Billionaire Boys Club is powerful pushing the business model and privatization into public sphere. Then they deny their own responsibility. No accountability for these guys. Just like Wall Street.
