If we continue to privatize education at this rate, we'll turn back the social progress clock to the 1600's -- when the Puritans still ran things.

Corporate sponsorship part of the education game
WEST BEND - Acuity Insurance Co.’s recent $525,000 purchase of naming rights for the West Bend High Schools Field House serves as part of a company wide commitment to education, says CEO Ben Salzmann.
The 83-year-old Sheboygan-based property and casualty insurer developed a plan of donating to education about three years ago, with the goal of helping a struggling state economy and in turn helping itself.
'We’re trying to build an environment where there isn’t such a brain drain out of the state of Wisconsin,' Salzmann said.
Taxpayers, he said, are paying too much to support education for people to graduate and leave the state.
So we stop the brain-drain by shifting the cost of education to an insurance company?
