No Child Left Behind—Part of the Corporate Takeover of Public Education?

Okay, folks, this is rather easy. Under which president was the No Child Left Behind law passed? George W. Bush. That’s correct!

Now think of the Bush Administration’s policies and accomplishments: the wars for the war profiteers, the voiding of environment rules for their corporate sponsors, the regulations written by corporate lobbyists from K Street, the regulation of the oil drilling companies by former oil drilling corporation employees, the Energy Policy written in secret by VP Dick Cheney, former Halliburton CEO, and his coal and oil company buddies . . . are you remembering this stuff?

Now ask yourself, if NCLB wasn’t good for Bush’s corporate sponsors, would they have paid any attention to it at all?

Think about it.
