What’s Behind the Netflix CEO’s Fight to Charterize Public Schools? @alternet
The answer to the question? Reed Hastings’ anti-democratic two-tiered system where the best and the brightest get one kind of schooling overseen by locally elected school boards while “everyone else” gets robotic screen-driven schooling driven by cost conscious entrepreneurs who want to reward shareholders… AND themselves.
The sort of technologies Hastings used to build his Silicon Valley empire and is now applying to education reform might not work for the nation’s schoolchildren.
