Socialism always sneaks in under the guise of Democracy through the educational elites.
The same educational elites that have practically outsourced education to private firms? How does that work, exactly? In Britain, the trend is for schools to be built and run by private firms under the guise of 'free schools', Academies, and the like. Other private firms, largely massive corporations are 'advising' the government on school dinners, nutrition and whether it's good to have vending machines selling crappy food to kids on the premises. I heard a story on the news yesterday where a school was basically forcing parents to buy iPads as they wanted to deliver educational materials solely through this device rather than through books or other multimedia platforms.
University tuition fees come in over the last decade or so and, infamously, the present Conservative-lead government helped increase the fees to £9,000 a year in most cases.
We've also seen the present government have some kind of nervous breakdown where they think it's 1950 or something and are overhauling curriculums, exams and even the amount of time they spent in school. All those ridiculous* 'lefty' and liberal subjects like arts and humanities are being thrown on the bonfire.
Can you explain where this "socialism" is being sneaked in? I'm not seeing it at all.
