"corporate control of public schools"...? That has to be the most ridiculous comment in the article. The big bad mean corporation is at fault once again. Haha lol... Nancy, we have a constitutional republic not a democracy. Sadly most of our educators in the USA do not even teach this fact. Nancy, is civics part of the common core curriculum? In North Carolina the state runs, funds, and dictates the bureaucratic debacle of public education. If tax payers are going to be kind enough to pay for every child's education the state could at least let the parents choose what institution is best suited for their child.
