I’m all for making improvements in educating our young so that we may remain strong in today’s global marketplace. To those concerned about undue influence by the corporations on our children’s knowledge let me say this. I am a father of 6 with 13 grandchildren and watched them all go through school. I can also remember my schooling days. If you think you can truly influence a teen’s decision making process via private funding you are sadly mistaken. They will take their given rebellious nature and proceed with life as they see fit.
