Dubious Agendas 

Since the inception of No Child Left Behind, Common Core, and Every Student Succeeds Act, a variety of outside the public school entities have profited from these mandates.  From software providers, to standardized testing companies, to consultants, to digital curriculum providers, to computer vendors for personalized devices for elementary students, to teacher union contracts, to divisive course content, there are plenty of entities who have a vested interest in padding their pockets or advancing their own position, but little motive to help students achieve academic excellence.

School districts spend more and more each year, and are getting worse and worse academic results.  

When entities place their own interests ahead of the interests of actual students and the taxpayers who fund the public schools, their motives should be questioned.
