The Next Step in Scott Walker’s Corporate Education Reform Agenda: Diploma Mills

Okay, my prediction rate -- based solely on making the pettiest and most cynical assumptions -- is now about 98%.

Republicans in Wisconsin have not yet begun to fight against the traditional public school system in that state. A new Republican bill in that state would give nine political appointees – a Charter School Authorizing Board hand-picked by the governor and leaders of the state legislature – the power to authorize new charter schools while leaving the funding of those schools up to local school districts. It would also raise the cap on how many students could attend ‘virtual’ schools and lower the standards for teachers at public charters.


Because a guy without a college degree who lied about an economic emergency to try to rush through a batch of piratical laws written for him by tycoons has a better idea how to educate Wisconsin's future?

Along with the bill's other provisions (i.e., reducing teacher certification requirements), it's the perfect educational plan to help prepare future generations for Wisconsin's upcoming 250,000 ten-dollar-an-hour/no benefits jobs.
