Oh, Jon ---- Jon Jon Jon. You think you are being outlandish and overstating the case but really there are people who are proposing, straightfaced, pretty much what you are saying. If not emailing all the grading out to India, then replacing teachers with a robot or computer program. (Suddenly SUNY's decision makes sense in the whole conspiracy-scheme of things.)
Because nothing is easier to control with a computer program than a distracted, unmotivated child who doesn't want to learn about fractions or verb tenses or godhelpusall critical thinking.
But it's really all fine, because if we're outsourcing all the jobs, then there won't be any work or wealth or food for these kids in the near future and they're not going to need any education. Hell, they probably need to be as stupid as possible or else they're going to notice what's happening and break out into violence.
