Setting the stage for massive privatization of public schooling requires controlling the terms of discussion about educational inequality. One must not talk about educational funding that keeps the rich rich and the poor poor; one must talk about increasing billable hours that significantly expand the total market for extorting support from anxious parents. But keeping kids locked up longer in overcrowded underfunded institutions only serves to prepare them to fill beds for the prison and military industries. Obama's plan for education mirrors his plan for health care: of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich. His fraudulent agenda, built on a social crisis he helped create, is a shameful episode in the history of unraveling civil rights in America. A key part of our total indoctrination awareness.
