It isn't stressed that higher standard education will only be available to the [shrinking] upper middle class, who will be able to supplement their vouchers. As usual, it's the poor and minorities whose children suffer. The libertarian fools among you see nothing wrong with that. You focus on the mosquitos of parasitic/lazy poor people on welfare that are biting your ankle, while the saurian super predators are eating your children. Maybe you'll begin to awaken when the torches and pitchforks arrive at your door, ten percenter! Chances are the common folk won't be able to find your masters that are responsible for the devolution of the human race and the days of blood and anger to come.
How did the Walton's, Gates et al. really win the class war [so far!] and bend the spirit of the human race to their wills? It began with the enthrallment that won our hearts and minds. For that we must congratulate the living dead vampire shades of Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman, who've inspired the blood lust of our billionaire benefactors.
Many millions were thrown into the fray by the 21st Century philanthropic foundations of Gates, Waltons and others to counter the thousands that decent human beings had to influence voters and policy makers. Control of the taxpayers' school funds by for profit private managers, we were told and many of us convinced [from the Latin vince - to conquer] would cure our schools problems: both real and imaginary.
