We've already seen how chucking insane amounts of money at hospitals and doctors hasn't made our hospitals any cleaner and safer or our doctors any more useful. And here're some interesting stats from the US about how effective all the money they spent on "education" has been:

But looking at decades of achievement data one can’t help but conclude that keeping teacher jobs at all costs truly isn’t about the kids, but the adults either employed in education, or trying to get the votes of those employed in education. As the following chart makes clear, we have added teachers in droves for decades without improving ultimate achievement at all:

A visit to my daughter's school always leaves me wanting to strangle the "educational specialists" for all the managerialist bollocks they spout. It's not a fucking school any more, it's like a bunch of refugees from Arthur fucking Andersen wittering on about "outcomes" and "interventions".

I'm not surprised to find the whole fucking scam is jobs for the boys and girls - and fuck the parents.

You could do a gal's head in.

Who'd have thought that a government monopoly, funded by extortion, that however much they extorted it wouldn't change the output one bit.

Disagree with you here Obo. I don't think it's all about the jobz.

I think they really think this is 'progress'.

I base this on my personal experience (and real friendships too) with socialist drones.
