School resources are diverted into testing and remediation and away from education. The more testing and remediation as opposed to teaching and learning, the more development of a privileged class and an underclass. Who benefits from the educational-technological -bureaucratic complex? Certainly not the 99%. I know, I was and am an educator.Remarkable coincidence-the parallel growth of prisons and rising school failure. What careers await youth who are not “successful” in school? Well…could they be prisoners (career criminals) or prison guards? Education today is under attack but people don’t know the underlying reasons why schools and kids fail.
