Taxes collected for Education are a gold mine (literally) for companies who have practiced fake education while soaking up money meant to educate the children of the non-wealthy.

Where is the proof in terms of actual, measurable, quantifiable numbers that schools are failing! What has been a failure are the corporations being able to siphon off funds meant to enable education and still provide a quality education.
If the objective is to educate children, then well paid, well qualified, credentialed educators equipped with the best educational technology and working in the best physical conditions is what we need. In education, as in everything else, you get what you pay for.
