PBS Pushing Privatization Propaganda?


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Traditional donors are moneying pro-school privatization docudramas on PBS. Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, as well as Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Inform us exactly what you assume in the comment area listed below.

" Assistant of Education and learning Betsy DeVos and her department have pushed for a growth of privatized institution selection programs in the proposed allocate 2018, especially in the form of private school vouchers. Currently a propagandistic three-part docudrama series called Institution Inc. will certainly aid DeVos in her efforts to acquire public support for broadened private school selection alternatives. The collection has actually currently broadcast on PBS terminals in some markets and will be shown on a lot more this month.

A bulk of individuals throughout the partial range oppose private school coupons, programs that reroute public education cash to pay for independent school tuition. Coupons are problematic for numerous factors, including their background of enabling discrimination versus LGBTQ, handicapped, as well as special education students, their impact on reducing public education and learning funding, and their ineffectiveness in boosting scholastic success.

Regardless of these issues, private school vouchers are a long-standing priority of the companies as well as conservative funders backing the education privatization movement. The late Andrew Coulson, veteran head of the Cato Institute's Facility for Educational Freedom, was the owning force behind College Inc. The Cato Institute is a right-wing, libertarian think-tank that calls for the elimination of public institutions in support of higher "academic liberty" to pick from a free enterprise of independently run institutions.

In addition to College Inc.'s origins in the radical, liberal Cato Institute, education and learning chronicler and former U.S. Aide Secretary of Education and learning Diane Ravitch located that the movie was moneyed by a number of arch-conservative structures with ties to the "dark cash ATM" DonorsTrust as well as the Ayn Rand Institute. Ravitch has actually prescreened College Inc. and also supplied this scathing testimonial to The Washington Message:"

      Conservatives still target PBS for defunding, nothing has changed… One story, that they didn’t even bother watching, doesn’t change that fact.

    doesn’t Betsy DeVos realize that by forcing privatization of schools comes at a price? Because most Americans cannot afford private schooling for their children!
    This is the equivalent of forcing someone into buying a Porsche when in essence they can only afford a Buick! capitalism only works when it benefits all parties involved…. And not just the ones calling the shots!

    • Posted by modhatter113, at Reply

      Because paying for other peoples children when they can’t afford to have them is the responsibility of everyone, apparently.

      “Help, I can’t afford children, so I’ll make you pay for their upkeep.” Just replace “children” with “Porsche” and the parasitical entitlement becomes apparent.

      Ending entitlements, and welfare will deter irresponsible behavior, at the cost of many today for the sake of personal responsibility tomorrow.

      Liberals rank high on the caring foundation, but low on the fairness foundation.

      Watch Jonathan Haidt on The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives.

      Privatizing doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t be funded with public money. The idea pushed most often is that of giving people vouchers and allowing them to choose their own school. So their ability to pay is irrelevant. The difference is that they aren’t forced to go to only certain schools. It’s still paid for with public money.

    The one apparent common goal of the conservative agenda is this: Keep people uneducated and pregnant; then unable to educate those babies they keep cranking out because birth control, sex education, and abortion shouldn’t happen. The more ignorant the masses, the more easily the powers that be can control them.

    I hope Ana knows that evolution isn’t 100% proven as fact. If you were truly supportive of both sides then I think you should be mentioning that.

    • Posted by Sterling, at Reply

      The idea of evolution being a 100% fact is disputable. Sorry, but people aren’t changing my opinion on that, but people get so worked up when this is mentioned, oh how dare I mention the technical ideals behind what we know. The idea of gravity also includes more then just things falling. Parts of gravity are known as fact, but there are also areas of it we are still not sure on.

    • Posted by modhatter113, at Reply

      The observation of biological life changing over time is not an idea, it’s an observation. Again, you are confusing the explanation “The idea” aka the theory with the “Observation” aka the fact. Again, learn what the difference is between facts and theories in science.

      You are using these words colloquially, and not how they’re used in science.

      Watch this video for a more comprehensive understanding of this.

      No where in my comment did I say I agreed or disagreed with creationism. I feel that the idea with the most evidence behind it should be taught however you are assuming when I said evolution is not 100% fact that I agree with creationism. Read my comments please.

      I agree with modhatter113, Aron Ra does a terrific explanation of how it works and that’s a great video about it.

    • Posted by modhatter113, at Reply

      I never said you were a creationist. And get that you’re not. The video is still very informative on the subject to those who oppose evolution for religious reasons, or for those who simply don’t fully understand what a scientific fact and theory is, as you have shown.

    US public education started with the Puritans in the 17th century.
    And, we were a world leader in the field through the 20th century.
    Education is one of the best investments a government can make.
    Privatization of education is ignorant and disgusting. These people have no business in government.

      The Puritans funded education with tax money in 17th century America?

      Medicare/Medicaid works with private companies, with SNAP you can buy your food from private companies, vocational rehab often works with private companies for vocational services and HUD housing subsidies are paid directly to landlords. Every other anti-poverty program uses private companies for the sake of efficiency but in this case it will never work for reasons unexplained.

    • Posted by James Nicholl, at Reply

      Because it’s easy to say what food is.
      It’s easy to say what healthcare is.
      It’s easy to say what a house is.
      It’s very hard to say what education is, and these vouchers are going to be spent on making kids more ignorant and uneducated.

    • Posted by acidsniper, at Reply

      The Federal Government and the States set the standards for schools including alternative schools but somehow that system won’t work if everyone involved isn’t a government employee. The results of standardized tests are far less complicated than healthcare outcomes and they’re easier to inspect than housing units.

    I hated private school… I got a Grade A brainwas… Christian training… But every other opportunity sucked. But hey, it’s an expensive “college prep” school where my Algebra 2 teacher could barely do simple math, she learned it every day from the dpt head; she applied to be a bible teacher. At least the teachers are certified in public schools.

    • Posted by Leivve, at Reply

      Right? Public school teachers are held to such unreasonably high standards, but private school teachers could teach kids the earth is flat in a science class and still hold their job.

      Scott Absolutely nothing as long as my taxes don’t pay for the private schools. Taking public money from public education and giving it to for-profit, private corporations is wrong. I also don’t want private prisons, or private companies jobbing out to the military and profiting off war. Just call me crazy.

      The problem is funding private schools with public taxpayer money

  11. Posted by gat569, at Reply

    The government has no business sending tax payer money to fund private schools. Public education is the great equalizer of the masses, giving us a secular commonality to bond around. Through public education the secular government is supported which is why the alt-Christian neo-fascist right wing including the DeVos family hates it. Divert tax payer funds to “private” schools with no oversight of curriculum and you can promote any agenda (tax payer funded) in that school that you want while at the same time crippling the public education system and public teacher’s unions. Privatization of school is antithetical to “real” American freedom; the freedom that our forefathers chose for themselves when they fled religiously oppressive Europe. If you want a religious education for your child, send them to a private school, but YOU pay for it.

      Charter schools aren’t private. Without them, how could alternative curricula be provided to families who can’t afford private school?

    • Posted by gat569, at Reply

      @Coolridge Dollar – Thanks for the catch. What I meant was “private” schools instead of “charter”. I’ve edited the comment above to reflect my intention of commenting on “private” schools. There’s problems with charter schools as well, but it’s a different beast than I think TYT was talking about.

      Everything is managed much easier in tiny, culturally homogeneous countries. Not a great comparison, that.

    • Posted by Mark Lapworth, at Reply

      Yes, of course, Coolidge, why didn’t I think of that? Impossible for the sustainably wealthiest country on the planet in the history of time to develop national standards of education and funding that are applied everywhere so that your postcode doesn’t affect your equality of opportunity. What WAS I thinking?

    • Posted by Coolidge Dollar, at Reply

      I’m not saying the U.S. is well-governed by any means. But the more people spread out over the greater the area, the more conflicts will be encountered as some things just won’t “work” for many. This is basic sociological and economic fact. Do you think most Oregonians would like to be governed by Texan standards? I hope not.
      Incidentally, the original point of charter schools is “so that your postcode doesn’t affect your equality of opportunity.” Your argument seems pointed in the opposite directions, towards centralization.

      Funny that I actually learned how Ayn Rand came up from her philosophy when watching an analysis of the game BioShock. The game’s antagonist Andrew Ryan was based heavily on Rand, including how their personal experiences drove them to such an extreme ideology. I understand why, but it doesn’t mean I agree. It just means I know how they went wrong.
