Bill Gates wants a Federal Student Data Tracking System. That’s right. He also wants competency-based education, more career pathways programs, and personalized learning to take over public education. This is the same guy who funded Common Core. Remember that when you read the document released by the Gates Foundation today. If I had to guess, now that many education bloggers have exposed all the agendas which will lead to the Bit-Coin inspired Blockchain Initiative, the corporate education reformers (clearly led by Bill Gates) have nothing to lose by getting it all out there now. Now I know why U.S. Senator Chris Coons (Delaware) is chomping at the bit for his post-secondary legislation to get passed by Congress.
Read this. Every single word. Read between the lines. This is the endgame they have been pushing for, the complete and utter destruction of public education in anticipation of online education for all. Where you will be tracked from cradle to grave, with data allowed to be looked at through a federal database, which will track everything about you. The sad part is they play to civil rights groups by assuring more success for minorities. They screw over students with disabilities every chance they get. But their manipulation of under-served communities is at an all-time high in this document. Words like “outcome-based funding” scare the crap out of me, and it should for every single American. Look at all the footnotes in the below document. Look at the companies and think-tanks that are reaping immense profits for every bogus report they come out with. Look how embedded this already is in every single state and our national government.
While this document is geared towards higher education, its goals are for ALL education. It is all about creating the “workforce of tomorrow”. He mentions Jobs For the Future at the very end of the document. Just take a look at the corporate education reform madness they push out. I have no doubt Gates is concerned about the workforce of tomorrow. By making sure we are all learning online, Microsoft continues to profit. And all the other ed tech companies are chomping at the bit for their big paydays of the future. This is ALL about corporate profit.
Hillary Clinton will, in all likelihood, be our next President. She is all in on this. Every single step. And she has been since the very beginning. The question is if we can, as everyday Americans, education enough people to rise up and tell our government to stop selling out education to investors, hedge fund managers, and ed tech companies. That will be the challenge. How do you stop corporations and billionaires from taking over not only education but the entire economy? It takes courage and strength, bravery and daring. It is in all of us. Now we have to bring it out more than ever so we can turn the future into one of our design, not those who wish to be prophets and profit.
