A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

25 June 2007

Home of Tomorrow's Consumers!

Proof that we are not learning any lessons from our experiments in unrestricted free-market, free-wheel capitalism:

Apparently the problem is that enrolment has risen, while government funding for schools in the Ottawa area has fallen. So the logical solution is ... corporate sponsorship?

Of course it is.

"Welcome to Wal-Mart High" says the article at Yahoo! News.

But of course, this solution could prove a thorny problem: after all, people would be getting an education. And a well-educated workforce definitely isn't one of the major goals for Wal-Mart.

I only hope that this is a ridiculous point-making strategy by one of the public education groups, attempting to draw government funding back into education, where it should be.

I just read the article. I don't get what the Ottawa School Board's problem is. Why is it so cash-strapped to begin with? I lived there quite a while and they were always whining. I think that should concern parents just as much as corporate sponsorship.
