Branding our schools not only leads to captive consumerism with students, but even more negatively it could and would impact curriculum. How would it
When Monsanto and BP team up to underwrite your science department and start sharing their corporate-sponsored studies with students because they are
included "free of charge" in the envelope with the check to keep the class new and exciting - you have educational bias - at a minimum. It would
When McDonald's funds parts of the operation of your school lunch room, students get a starring role in the next "Super Size Me Jr." documentary. When
Haliburton starts sending money and your health classes, phys. ed. and history classes get the corporate-sponsored literature on how things really
went down during that (pick one) war - from their perspective - history won't be written by the winners, but it will be written by the folks who tend
to enter and exit using the back door during conflict for some reason.
And if the school really scores - AIG biggies up and sponsors the life skills class and throws in their sure to be printed on glossy paper stock
brochures on managing your finances (you must be 18 yrs. old and working for us to get a bailout so sorry kids - but you can be anything you want when
you grow up - really.)
The indoctrination process and educating of our young on the best things to learn in order to prosper in a heavily-leaning fascist society would be
Yippeee. another terrible idea to further degrade our education system. Gee.
Thanks for the heads-up DD...we've got incoming.
