Bill Gates legacy, billions of dollars wasted, teachers losing their jobs and kids getting a poor education

Teachers are forced into odious evaluation systems, kids are forced to take classes they have no desire to take, schools are closed because of tests scores and what does bill Gates say? Who knows if any of it is going to work?

Funny because in the past he was sure smaller schools would work, identifying the best teachers and loading them up would work and the only reform with real evidence that says it does work, smaller classes would not work.

This is why we shouldn’t have billionaires driving education reform. They don’t need evidence or facts, or logic; instead they go with their guts, which they believe must be infallible because they are rich after all.  Then when their ideas fail over and over the hubris they have allows them to ignore the results as they are off to their next sure fix.

That’s the way it used to be anyway before Gates dropped, the “who knows” bombshell. But do you think that has slowed him down? No not for a second, after all since he is rich he is the only one who could possibly know how to fix our problems.

 “It would be great if our education stuff worked, but that we won’t know for probably a decade.” –Bill Gates

In the meantime because of Gates and others like him, teachers are being forced out of the profession and kids aren’t getting the education they deserve and at the end of the day this will be Gates legacy.
Here is a great, Bill Gates please stop meddling in schools website:
