    "When I see Bill or Melinda make a pronouncement on education, I am reminded of the song in “Fiddler on the Roof”: “When you’re rich, they think you really know.""

    Gates a college dropout who lucked out by buying software that has sold billions now presumes to know more than experienced teachers. But given his business practice of killing competition by offering similar software bundled with Windows, why would anyone expect morals from the man? And check out his outsourcing to India effort. Interesting articles, enjoy. And please shoot the writers if you disagree.

    "I am puzzled by what I read in the column cited here. I am also puzzled by the Gates Foundation’s persistent funding of groups that want to privatize public education. I am puzzled by their funding of “astroturf” groups of young teachers who insist that they don’t want any job protections, don’t want to be rewarded for their experience (of which they have little) or for any additional degrees, and certainly don’t want to be represented by a collective bargaining unit.

    I am puzzled by their funding of groups that are promoting an anti-teacher, anti-public education agenda in state after state. And I am puzzled by the hundreds of millions they have poured into the quixotic search to guarantee that every single classroom has a teacher that knows how to raise test scores."

    Microsoft imitates their own nonsense, good for them.

    "If you were on a team of 10 people, you walked in the first day knowing that, no matter how good everyone was, 2 people were going to get a great review, 7 were going to get mediocre reviews, and 1 was going to get a terrible review,” says a former software developer. “It leads to employees focusing on competing with each other rather than competing with other companies."

    Liberals are terrified by a system that rewards excellence and punishes failure.

    I wonder why that is?

    Liberals are disgusted with a system that encourage the dismantling of the USA.

    I wonder why so many people like you CRU, think its a great idea.

    I can only conclude that you love the masters more than your neighbors.

    Liberals hate charter schools where minority students score 10% higher in reading and 20% higher in math than thier trapped on the Democrat public school plantation students

    Why do Democrats hate successful minorities? Do they fear educated minorities will leave the Democratic plantation of food stamps and unemployment?

    Imagine that.

    A bunch of rw's saying that a man who could buy Ireland and earned every cent himself, is a "fool".

    Same bunch of rw's humping Mittens' leg even though the KNOW he plans to take every penny they will ever have and every penny their kids will ever have.

    Imagine that.

    Apparently, you idiots are all part of the ONE PERCENT because the only other explanation for your truly idiotic posts is that you are true cretins.

    Yeah. Screw education. YOu didn't get any and look how you turned out, right?

    After all, if all goes well, they'll soon be cleaning the school bathrooms.

    Do you fools ever THINK before you type?
