      Here is an interesting interview which shows that educational funding, if even not by design, is a class issue and some could say war against the lower and middle class.

      On the Educational Inequality Front:



      This is the laugher of the week. Or at least it is my nominee.



      KPBS (owned by San Diego State where the cash cow program is the

      college of education) did a special on educational foundations,

      funding agencies set up by mostly wealthy people to fund their public

      schools, while poor people do not have similar foundations. The

      reporter visited rich and poor schools. Having been to them, the rich

      school looks like a country club overlooking the sea. The poor school

      looks like, well, you know.



      What does the KPBS reporter have to say about the fact that rich

      people have lovely schools paid for, in part, by private foundations,

      while poor people do not?



      "And, you know, and I want to tell our audience, too, this isn't a

      story about rich versus poor."

      You cannot make this stuff up. No class war here, for sure, none, not

      that I see, no way, nope. Nada. Nyet.



      KPBS sponsors include the Gates Foundation (convicted monopolist) and

      Archers Daniels Midland (convicted of fixing food prices, made famous

      now in "The Informant!") .



      The program, if you can get it, is worth watching, would be terrific

      in an ed foundations or related class.



      Good luck to us, every one.
