Dear Mr. & Mrs. Gates,
The next time you wanted to fund a huge EXPERIMENT in America,
perhaps you should consult the PARENTS of the 50 million children!
And don’t ever think you will get away with stealing a decade of our children’s lives.
MAMMON AND MORALS do not make for good bedfellows.
I think, personally that the two of you should go somewhere for about 10 months straight and write a paper, a serious soul-searching paper, about the things money can’t buy.
And when you are done doing all of that, I think you should spend the next 4 straight years apologizing to the teachers and children (and parents) you have harmed. I have not had a day this week where I have not seen another’s tears, or heard of another AWESOME INCREDIBLE teacher quitting. I started researching all of this bogus bad business deal in January of 2013.
My regret is that I did not keep a daily journal written, for it has been that often that I have seen literal physical, emotional, and mental anguish directly related to your grand scheme.
It is sick truly,,,,sick, sick, sick………..(I am not even going to start in on the subject of children with special needs, which you conveniently left out of the equation!)
And while mentioning that word (SICK), your have been looking pretty ill lately……….you know what could possibly help that? Going to bed with a clean conscience works like a charm!
Close the funding GATES!! You are flooding us with FAKE TEACHING, suffocating us with life-sucking STANDARDS, and blind-siding the people again and again and again by buying BILLS that make our LAWS! That is so unAmerican and Inhumane.
Your Propaganda for Profit through the PUBLIC school systems in a REPUBLIC DEMOCRACY will fail in 10 months…..you will not have 10 years.
