Bill Gates is ruining public education.  Diane Ravitch writes:

“[A]t a time when many schools have fiscal problems and are laying off teachers, nurses, and counselors, and eliminating arts programs, the nation’s schools will be forced to spend billions of dollars on Common Core materials, testing, hardware, and software.

Microsoft, Pearson, and other corporations and entrepreneurs will reap the rewards of this new marketplace. Our nation’s children will not.”

I am sick of Gates and other billionaires like the Walton family dictating how and what I teach, how I am to be evaluated, and what subjects my students should or shouldn’t learn.  We should take their money out of our schools.  And if you think we don’t have any money coming from the government, perhaps we could cut that “defense” budget just a little bit.
