The Guy Who Made Vista is In Charge of Your Children's Educational Future
That's Windows Vista. If you've had it, you don't need me to explain. Do you want your kid to grow up to be Vista?!
Across the country, public education is in the midst of a quiet revolution. States are embracing voluntary national standards for English and math, while schools are paying teachers based on student performance.
It's an agenda propelled in part by a flood of money from a billionaire prep-school graduate best known for his software empire: Bill Gates.
In the past 2 1/2 years, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged more than $650 million to schools, public agencies and other groups that buy into its main education priorities.
Our friends Bill and Melinda are also (allegedly) eugenics fanatics interested in developing new technology to randomly sterilize certain sections of certain populations. Totally rad. So how is it evil old Bill can come up with shit like this but can't manage to create a usable operating system?
